LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL 

Raleigh, September 2, 1930. 

To His Excellency, O. Max Gardner, 

Governor of North Carolina. 

Sir: — The Corporation Commission has the honor to make its 
biennial report for the thirty-eighth and thirty-ninth years of its 
operation. 

Railroads 

The effect of motor vehicle transportation is being felt by the 
railroads, as evidenced by the fact that most of their petitions 
to this Commission assign it as the principal reason for action. 
This is the reason usually given, coupled more recently with that of 
general business depression, in applications for permission to close 
agency stations and make them prepay points. Quite a number 
of agency stations have been discontinued during the period cov- 
ered by this report. It is apparent that motor vehicle compe- 
tition is affecting seriously the operation of short line railroads, 
notwithstanding the fact that it is the policy of our Commission 
to extend to them very liberal treatment in the matter of rates. 
One of these short line railroads, the Kinston Carolina Railroad, 
a subsidiary of the Norfolk Southern Railroad, extending from 
Kinston to Beulaville, a distince of twenty-nine miles, was aban- 
doned. Other short line railways are struggling for existence. 
While some of them have actually started abandonment proceed- 
ings, others are understood to be contemplating such action. 

There has been little change in mileage operated by railroads 
in this State during the past two years, 4,995.06 miles having 
been operated during the year 1928, and 4,989.49 miles of road 
in 1929. The total investment reported by the companies in 1929 
was $306,566,548.22, represented by capital stock of $110,956,768.37 
and funded debt of $165,263,758.73. The operating revenue in 
1928 was $80,520,179.91, which, in 1929, decreased to $78,749,654.02. 
Of the above revenue, in 1928 the passenger revenue was $13,425,- 
109.65 and in 1929 it decreased to $13,331,261.91. 

Freight Rates 
Within the last few years the freight rate structure of the 
Nation has undergone great change. In former times, group, or

blanket, rates, particularly for long distances, were common and, 
in fact, generally in use; while the more recent rule has been 
mileage rates almost exclusively. The Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission, after investigation, caused to be put in force in the whole 
South, east of the Mississippi, on January 15, 1928, interstate 
mileage class rates, which that Commission declared reasonable 
also for intrastate application within each of the states. Follow- 
ing this action, many of the state commissions adopted the scale. 
This Commission did not adopt the new and higher scale for the 
reason that it felt that on account of our proximity to Official 
Territory, where lower rates generally are in force, the applica- 
tion of these rates in this State would not only be unfair to our 
shipping interests, but would compel the use of motor trucks. 
However, the Interstate Commerce Commission, in the Virginia 
State Corporation Commission's case, known as I. C. C. Docket 
No. 16321, held that our intrastate rates were discriminatory 
against the new interstate mileage rates between Virginia and 
North Carolina points and ordered our intrastate rates raised 
to the interstate level. After consultation with you and repre- 
sentative groups of shippers of the State, including the best legal 
talent, our Commission petitioned the Interstate Commerce Com- 
mission to set aside its order and allow this Commission to pro 
ceed in the regular way to put the new mileage rates into effect. 
The petition was granted. The case was handled in this way in 
order that our own State might retain its jurisdiction in purely 
intrastate rate matters. The new class rates are governed by 
Southern Classification in connection with Exceptions "A" and 
"B" thereto, instead of as formerly by North Carolina exceptions 
ordered by this Commission. A number of the more important 
items formerly in our Exception Sheet were brought forward as 
commodity rates, thus preventing what would otherwise have 
been a radical change in the rates affected. 

Log Rates: The carriers have filed with this Commission an 
application for revision of rates on logs and investigation indicates 
that this may prove important to our wood-working manufacturers. 

Cases before Interstate Commerce Commission 
North Crolina Rate Case, I. C. C. 21665: This case, referred to 
in previous report, was brought by this Commission upon recom- 
mendation of the Transportation Advisory Commission. The first 
hearing on the complaint was held in Raleigh in January, 1930, 
at which time we introduced evidence. Upon request of the car- 
riers, based upon the argument that our testimony and exhibits 



V 



Letter op Transmittal v 

were of such volume that they would require considerable time 
for study, the Interstate Commerce Commission adjourned the 
hearing to a later date. A further hearing was held in July, 1930, 
at which the carriers presented evidence relating principally to 
cost and classification. The introduction of further evidence at a 
future hearing has been made necessary by decision in the Eastern 
Class Kate Investigation, I. C. C. 15879, which will change rates 
to Virginia cities upon which much of our testimony was based. 
This will necessitate the reworking of a considerable portion of 
our previous exhibits and the introduction of same in revised form. 
This Commission has great hope of this case bringing substantial 
relief to North Carolina* shippers and receivers who deal with 
Official Classification Territory. 

Cotton Factory Products — /. C. C. 22363: This Commission par- 
ticipated in the hearing of this case and joined with the Cotton 
Manufacturers' Association of North Carolina and others in filing 
brief. The complaint involved a principle of rate making on cotton 
goods which seemed to place in jeopardy our present cotton goods 
rate structure. The case is still pending. 

Strawberry Transportation Service: Final decision was ren- 
dered by the Interstate Commerce Commission in the matter of 
transportation of strawberries and dewberries in express refriger- 
ator cars, requiring the carriers to furnish this service, which is 
now available to such shippers. This should result in great benefit 
to the berry shippers, particularly enabling them to extend their 
markets and compete with berry shippers in other sections who 
have heretofore enjoyed this service. 

Vegetable Rates: Vegetable rates, referred to in previous re- 
ports, are still before the Commission for the purpose of determi- 
nation as to whether the rates in future shall be stated in cents 
per hundred pounds or in cents per package, as heretofore; but 
the main issue which concerns our shippers — relating to the meas- 
ure of the charges — has been settled at a considerable saving from 
the rates previously in force. 

Cotton Rates: The general investigation of cotton rates by the 
Interstate Commerce Commission has been concluded and its de- 
cision rendered, resulting in no changes which will affect vitally 
shippers in this State. 

Cottonseed and Related Articles: The general investigation of 
the rates on cottonseed and related articles has been delayed; how- 
ever, a proposed report is expected in the near future. A repre- 
sentative of this Commission is sitting with the Federal Commis- 



vi N. C. Corporation Commission 

sion in this case, which is being handled under cooperative 
procedure. 

Fourth Section Application — /. C. C. 13470: This case is the 
carriers' application for permission to maintain rates in North 
Carolina higher than to those Virginia points while handling Vir- 
ginia traffic through North Carolina. This case is pending. 

Clay Products: A complaint filed by the W. S. Dickey Manu- 
facturing Company, of Chattanooga, Tenn. ? attacking rates on clay 
products, sewer pipe, etc., within North Carolina as being discrimi- 
natory against interstate rates, has been assigned for hearing. 
This Commission will continue its active interest in this proceed- 
ing in defense of our intrastate rates. 

Southwestern Investigations — I. C. C. 13535: This Commission 
has continued its interest in what is known as Southwestern Inves- 
tigation with particular reference to rates from our territory to 
southwestern states. Further hearing in the matter is pending. 

Hosiery Rates: We are pleased with the result of action before 
the Interstate Commerce Commission involving rates on hosiery 
from Southern Territory. The carriers proposed to put the rates 
on the first class basis, which was protested by this Commission 
along with interested shippers. After hearing, rates were pre- 
scribed based on 75 per cent of first class, thereby resulting in 
considerable saving to hosiery shippers. 

Furniture Rates: Rates on this commodity, which are highly 
important to North Carolina, are still before the Commission in 
a general investigation. It is hoped a decision will be reached in 
the near future. 

Coal Rates: A new and important complaint has been filed by 
this Commission with reference to rates on coal from each of the 
producing areas to all destinations in this State. Testimony is 
being assembled preparatory to hearing and we hope the case will 
result in substantial reductions on this basic commodity as a result 
of our procedure. 

Adams-Bank Lumber Company — T&S 2479: This was a case of 
far-reaching importance, affecting, as it did, rates on forest prod- 
ucts from the whole Southern Territory and largely fixing rates 
between important points within the territory. The case was a 
cooperative one, in which the southern state commissionrs were 
invited to participate with the Interstate Commerce Commission 
in its investigation and conclusions. While the results obtained 
by our participation in the case as a representative state were not 
what we had desired, for the reason we think the rates allowed to 
become effective were too high, it is, nevertheless, a fact that there 



Letter of Transmittal vii 

were both increases and reductions and the final result is a more 
complete rate coverage than existed heretofore. 

Acknowledgment of Cooperative Assistance 
The Commission desires to acknowledge, with grateful appre- 
ciation, valuable assistance and hearty cooperation at the hands 
of the entire traffic body of the State, who are connected with 
individual corporations, firms and associations. 

Street Railways 
The number of passengers carried by street railways in 1929 was 
26,349,029, a decrease from the number carried the previous year, 
which was 27,613,454. The number of miles of road operated by 
street railways in 1928 was 134.56 and was decreased by 13.51 
miles in 1929. Street railway companies operated forty-one buses 
on 72.75 miles of road in 1928, and on 91.55 miles of road in 1929. 
These same companies operated 153 electric trolley cars in 1928 
and 137 in 1929. The decreases mentioned in this paragraph are 
due largely to the abandonment of the Durham Street Railway 
and the substitution of buses therefor. We can see very little future 
for the extension of street car lines. One factor detrimental to 
this extension is the practice of municipalities in requiring street 
car companies to assume heavy responsibilities with respect to 
street paving. 

Telephone Companies 

The companies operating telephone service in this State reported 
a total investment of f 22,526,126.46, with 152,822 stations connected 
by 87,073 miles of exchange wire and 47,331 miles of toll lines for 
the year 1928. In 1929, the same companies reported an invest- 
ment of |25,916,210.57, with 158,953 telephone stations, 95,172 
miles of exchange wire, and 54,727 miles of toll lines. 

The figures presented herein show a healthy increase in two 
years and the improvement in telephone service has been greatly 
enhanced during that period. The telephone station average in the 
United States is reported as approximately one station for every 
twenty inhabitants and the figures shown herein indicate about 
the same relationship in North Carolina. 

During the period mentioned in this report there has not been 
as much activity in telephone rates as in the period immediately 
preceding; but, this has been due largely to the fact that the com- 
panies have not had to build to meet the growing demand of our 
cities and rural communities as they did in the periods previous, 
or since the war. There was a time between 1920 and 1928 that 



viii N. C. Corporation Commission 

taxed the finances of the telephone companies to meet the public 
demand because of suburban and rural development. New devices 
for long distance service have been put in use which permit the 
multiple use of toll lines, resulting in almost instantaneous service 
between distant cities. 

Artificial Gas 

There has been much activity in the gas industry during the past 
two years. Practically all of our gas companies have changed 
ownership. A great deal of interest is being shown at the present 
time in propositions to bring natural .gas to the State. 

There was manufactured in the State during the year 1928, 
1,608,056,471 cubic feet of gas and this increased in 1929 to 
1,693,761,600 cubic feet. In 1928, these same companies carbonized 
89,598 tons of coal, which decreased in 1929 to 84,650. They used 
1,834,939 gallons of oil in 1928 and 1,782,380 in 1929. There were 
38,821 gas consumers in 1928 and 40,378 in 1929. 

Hydro and Steam Electric Power 
During the year 1928, electric utilities operating in this State 
generated 2,452,266,580 kilowatt hours. This increased in 1929 to 
2,686,246,732 kilowatt hours. These companies purchased from non- 
public utility manufacturing companies in 1929, 634,643,776 kilo- 
watt hours and sold during the same year 2,716,771,073 kilowatt 
hours. 

The unusual droughts which our State has been experiencing 
at intervals during the last ten years have made it necessary for 
the hydro-electric companies to keep large steam plants in operating 
condition for stand-by purposes during such times. In 1922, prac- 
tically all the electric service in the State from the west to as far 
east as Goldsboro was connected through the Georgia Power and 
Light Company with Muscle Shoals and for a period during that 
year the generating plants of the Carolina Power and Light Com- 
pany, the Southern Power Company, the Georgia Power & Light 
Company, and the Alabama Power Company were connected up 
so as to render service wherever needed. Several times since then 
this has been repeated. This year the drought has been greater 
than at any time for several years and a large number of reservoirs 
have been practically dry and useless and were it not for the steam 
plants, the State would be in an embarrassing predicament for 
power. This has been" especially detrimental to the power com- 
panies since they have bnilt to supply large manufacturing plants, 



Letter of Transmittal ix 

but the financial condition through which we have been passing 
has been such that these manufacturers have not been operating 
regularly; therefore, the power companies have been able to meet 
the demand. Until recently, when probably the expansion of manu- 
facturing plants has ceased elsewhere also, availability of electric 
power in this State has continued to invite industry from all parts 
of the country. 

Motor Vehicle Transportation 

Our fine highway system has formed the basis for development 
of a very fine passenger and freight motor vehicle service in the 
State. Our passenger operators have extended their lines until it 
is possible to obtain transportation almost hourly between all of 
our principal cities and the principal cities of adjoining states 
without change. Day and night service is not unusual and inter- 
line tickets may be purchased to almost any point in the United 
States. Our union bus stations are organized upon an economical 
basis and their operation has eliminated much confusion in addi- 
tion to providing convenience for the traveling public. 

We are very much interested in the development of motor freight 
service for the State which is now used largely by the shipping 
and consuming public. This class of transportation for freight and 
express is fast supplanting the intra-rail service. It has been the 
desire of the Commission to make uniform rates for freight and 
express, but because of the fact that we have probably five hundred 
trucks running on schedule under certificates issued under the 
Act of 1927 and probably five thousand of the remaining fifty thou- 
sand trucks in the State which operate in competition with these 
schedule trucks by cutting rates, it has not been possible to do so. 
This was brought about by the last legislature inadvertently pro- 
viding what was known as a triple tax upon the long haul truck, 
which does not operate under a certificate from this office but pays 
its tax directly to the Department of Kevenue. This provided a 
competition for the franchise truck operator which has not only 
been confusing to the shipping public, but also has been destruc- 
tive to the scheduled intercity operator, whose rates are supposed 
to be fixed by this office. The Commission recommends that all 
public service trucks be made subject to franchise and that this 
class of operators be divided into two classes : one, a regular sched- 
ule intercity operator; and the other, a miscellaneous operator. 
In this way the Commission can make rates for all public service 
trucks and not leave any public service operators outside the pale 



x N. C. Corporation Commission 

of the Commission's jurisdiction to operate when, where, and how 
they please and at such prices as they can get. The shipping public 
of the State is looking forward with much hope to transportation 
relief from the operation of the trucks; and, in order to give them 
this relief, it will be necessary for the legislature to give the Com- 
mission this additional jurisdiction. 

Since the passage of the Bus Law in 1925, several changes have 
been made with reference to the driver's fee and the Commission 
has reached the conclusion that the development of the bus business 
has reached the point where the driver's fee may be eliminated, as 
it is a tax upon an employee whose pay is small and accrues very 
little revenue to the State. The drivers could continue to be certi- 
ficated from the standpoint of physical defects and yet we believe 
that ninety per cent of the operators, both freight and passenger, 
would not now employ drivers who are not qualified both physically 
and from experience to render the best public service. We believe 
it was never the intent of the State to obtain revenue from that 
source but to protect the travel upon the highways by putting motor 
vehicles operated under the Bus Law in the hands of competent 
drivers. We think this has been accomplished to the extent that 
the fee may be eliminated.

DECISION AND ADJUSTMENTS OF COMPLAINTS 

RAILROAD COMPANIES 

IN RE: PETITION OF THE YADKIN RAILROAD COMPANY FOR 
PERMISSION TO DISCONTINUE THE OPERATION OF PASSEN- 
GER TRAINS BETWEEN SALISBURY AND ALBEMARLE. 

Order 

Upon petition of the Yadkin Railroad Company the Commission has had 
under consideration for some time the question of eliminating the passen- 
ger trains between Salisbury and Albemarle. The company now advises 
that it has purchased the bus operation between these two points and 
desires to run comfortable buses in lieu of the passenger trains. The 
petitioner states further that it will retain its freight, express and mail 
service. 

This proposal has been advertised widely in the vicinity affected by the 
change and only one protest was received. We are now advised that the 
party making this protest was interested particularly in the express service 
and that since he has learned that that will not be affected by the change, 
the protest has been withdrawn. The petitioner has not done any passenger 
business on this train which would in any manner compensate it for the 
expense of operation in a long time; therefore, under the circumstances, 
it appears that the change should be an improvement or at least more 
conveniently meet the demand of the public; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition be granted when the transfer of the bus 
operation to the petitioner has been completed and when the petitioner is 
ready to inaugurate that service.

Docket No. 6731. 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF THE SEABOARD AIR LINE 
RAILWAY COMPANY TO DISCONTINUE AGENCY AT MILL- 
BROOK, N. C. 

Order 

Hearing in the above matter was held at Raleigh, N. C, Wednesday, 
October 17, 1928, applicants being represented by Vice-President Stanley, 
and protestants being represented by Attorney William T. Hatch, for 
citizens of Millbrook and vicinity. 

Statements of earnings of the Seaboard Air Line Railway at Millbrook 
for the year from May 1, 1927, to April 30, 1928, was freight $3,170.05; 
passenger $116.55, total $3,286.60. For the year from July 1, 1927, to 
June 30, 1928, freight was $2,901.80; passenger $101.91, total $3,003.71. 

The expenses of operating the agency is stated as $1,473.00 annually. 
The Seaboard Air Line Railway Company alleges this agency is too expen- 
sive when compared with earnings derived therefrom, and J ;hat revenues is 
continually declining due to competition with freight and passenger trucks 
and busses. 

(i) 



2 N. C. Corporation Commission 

Protestants complain the community is developing and to remove the 
Seaboard Air Line Railway agency would retard development and for this 
reason it is contended the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company should 
continue to maintain the agency at this point. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that the expenses of the 
agency now maintained by the Seaboard Air Line Railway at Millbrook 
is out of proportion to the revenue derived from this station inasmuch as 
Millbrook is only 3.7 miles south of Neuse, a regular agency station, and 
7 miles north of Raleigh, and the station can be maintained upon a prepay 
basis notwithstanding some little inconvenience to the public. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company 
be and it is hereby authorized to discontinue the freight and ticket agency 
at Millbrook, making same a regular prepay station for the receipt and 
delivery of freight and passengers. 

By direction of the Commission : R. 0. Self, 

This 23rd day of November, 1928. Clerk. 

Docket No. 6733. 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF THE SEABOARD AIR LINE 
RAILWAY TO DISCONTINUE THE AGENCY AT MIDDLEBURG, 

N. C. 



Order 

Hearing in the above matter was held at the office of the Commission 
on Wednesday, October 17, 1928, the applicants being represented by Vice- 
President Stanley, of the Seaboard Air Line Railway, and protestants 
chiefly by Messrs. Bennett and Hose, of Middleburg. 

Statement of revenue of the Middleburg agency shows for twelve months, 
May 1, 1927, to April 30, 1928, freight revenues was $3,612.90; passenger 
revenue was $437.14, total revenue $4,050.04. For the year, August 1, 
1927, to July 31, 1928, freight revenue was $3,925.29; passenger revenu? 
was $420.08, total $4,345.57. The expense of operating the agency is 
given as $1,564.00 per annum. 

Middleburg's location is 2.9 miles from Manson, a regular agency on 
the north, and 3.4 miles from Graystone, an agency on the south. The 
Seaboard Air Line Railway Company contends there is no need of main- 
taining a telegraph office at Middleburg. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that the expenses of the 
Middleburg, N. C, agency is excessive in comparison with the apparent 
importance of the revenue accruing to the Seaboard Air Line Railway 
from this station; however, we also find the station is of such importance 
as to require a caretaker, whose duties shall be to assist shippers, and 
receivers in looking after and caring for freight arriving and being for- 
warded from this station. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the Seaboard Air Line Railway be, and 
they are hereby authorized to discontinue maintenance of regular agency 
at Middleburg, N. C, making the same a prepay station, and 

It is Further Ordered, That the Seaboard Air Line Railway place in 
charge of the station what is commonly known as a caretaker for the 



Decisions and Adjustments op Complaints 3 

performance of such duties as is usually performed by caretakers at other 

points on the Seaboard Air Line Railway.

This 23rd day of November, 1928. Clerk. 

Docket No. 6733. 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF HIGH POINT, RANDLE- 
MAN, ASHEBORO & SOUTHERN RAILROAD COMPANY TO DIS- 
CONTINUE THE AGENCY AT SOPHIA, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

Hearing on this application was held at Raleigh, North Carolina, Octo- 
ber 18, 1928, the applicant being represented by Messrs. Brittain, Brittain 
& Brittain, Attorneys at Law, Asheboro, North Carolina, and protestants, 
citizens of Sophia and community by Attorneys Moser & Burns of Ashe- 
boro, N. C. 

Application to close this agency contains the following statement, the 
application being sworn to by Vice President George H. Dugan, of the 
High Point, Randleman, Asheboro & Southern Railroad: 

"For the fifteen months from January 1, 1927, to March 31, 1928, 
your petitioner handled to and from Sophia, 53 cars of carload freight 
and 253 less than carload shipments, for which it received revenue, 
on carload freight, of $593.77, and on less than carload freight, 
$155.55, or a total revenue for 15 months of $749.32; an average 
monthly revenue of $49.95. 

"Your petitioner's revenue at this station is less than the salary 
of the Agent, $60.00 per month; the transportation of freight is per- 
formed without any remunerations whatever, and petitioner submits 
that public necessity or convenience cannot require that it perform a 
service at an actual loss or without remuneration; that such a require- 
ment would be confiscatory." 

In addition to the above the application goes on to state that as a matter 
of operating expediency certain spur tracks used for receipt and delivery 
of carload freight are managed by the Sophia agency; however, during 
the 15 months period referred to above there was handled at these sidings, 
namely, Bulla's Spur, Hughes & Pierce Spur, Edgar Spur, Glenola Spur, 
Frazier Spur, all told, received in carloads monthly 3 to 4 cars and for- 
warded 3 to 4 cars. 

Protestants acknowledge business at Sophia has not been so good as 
in the past, but argue that prospects are good for an improvement and 
that developments which are in contemplation would hardly take place if 
the agency of the railroad is removed at this time. It is apparent, 
and the Commission so finds that the whole revenue accruing to the rail- 
road at this station is insufficient to make it a reasonable requirement 
that the agency be maintained and, 

It is Therefore Ordered, The High Point, Randleman, Asheboro & 
Southern Railroad Company be, and it is hereby authorized to discontinue 
the agency at Sophia, North Carolina, and make same a regular prepay 
station. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 28th day of November, 1928. Clerk, 

Docket No. 6734. 



4: ]N T . C. Corporation Commission 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF SEABOARD AIR LINE 
RAILWAY COMPANY TO DISCONTINUE THE AGENCY AT 
MERRY OAKS, NORTH CAROLINA, AND MAKE SAME A PRE- 
PAY STATION. 

Order 

Hearing in the above matter took place at Raleigh, North Carolina, 
October 18, 1928, the Seaboard Air Line Railway being represented by 
Vice-President Stanley, and upon request of protestants, the citizens of 
Merry Oaks and community, through Attorney J. C. Little of Raleigh, 
were given an opportunity to present their side of the question November 
30, 1928, which was done on that date. 

The Seaboard Air Line Railway Company's revenue of earnings for 
the- Merry Oaks station from May 1, 1927, to April 30, 1928, is shown as 
$2,495.30; and for the year from July 1, 1927, to June 30, 1928, $2,080.77. 
The cost of operating the agency annually is shown as $1,627.48. This 
station is located 2.4 miles from Bonsai, a regular agency station, and 
5 miles from Moncure, another agency station. The Seaboard Air Line 
Railway contends on account of bus and truck competition the business 
of the station has decreased to such an extent as to make it reasonable 
that they be allowed to make same a prepay station. 

Protestants complain that the doing away with the agency at this 
station will inconvenience the merchants and other shippers and receivers 
of the community, with particular reference to wood and cross-ties, and 
that the Star Mail route will be inconvenienced by not having a telegraph 
station in order to keep informed concerning arrival of mail for Star 
Route movement. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that the expenses in- 
curred by the Seaboard Air Line Railway by maintaining a regular agent 
at this station is out of keeping with the income and that it would, there- 
fore, be an unreasonable requirement that the agency be continued. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company 
be, and it is hereby authorized to discontinue the agency at Merry Oaks, 
North Carolina, and make same a prepay station. .

Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 5 

ABERDEEN SAND COMPANY, INC., v. HIGH POINT, RANDLEMAN, 
ASHEBORO AND SOUTHERN RAILROAD. 

Order 

This is a complaint of the Aberdeen Sand Company, Inc., through 
Traffic Manager G. T. Smith, of Norfolk, Virginia, dated October 18, 1928, 
in which it is alleged that Agent Cottrell's I. C. C. 710, North Carolina 
Joint Tariff, publishes distance between Asheboro and High Point at 27.7 
miles," which is figured via Randleman Loop and which complainant con- 
tends should be figured via Randleman Junction. Copy of the complaint 
was served upon the defendant railroad company, and hearing was re- 
quested. The matter was heard in the office of the Commission, at Raleigh, 
February 12, 1929. 

The complainant was represented at the hearing by Henry A. Page, of 
Aberdeen, who put forward contentions, as alleged in the complaint, not 
only as applicable to sand shipments, but also on all freight traffic passing 
over the line of the High Point, Randleman, Asheboro & Southern Rail- 
road, the contention being made that the Randleman Loop, so-called, is no 
more nor less than a branch line and the distance, therefore, to and from 
the main line should not be included in the distance between High Point 
and Asheboro. The railroad was represented by Charles Clark, attorney 
of Washington, D. C, and testimony was presented to the effect that the 
High Point, Randleman, Asheboro & Southern Railroad was planned as a 
whole, and that the Randleman Loop, so-called, was included in the main 
line distance for the reason that 85 per cent of the trains moving between 
Hjgh Point and Asheboro were routed via Randleman, whereas, only 15 
per cent either set off cars at Randleman Junction, or move directly 
through Randleman Junction without going to Randleman. 

The evidence of the railroad shows the actual distance between High 
Point and Asheboro, including the distance via Randleman Loop to be 
27.7 miles, and when figured via Randleman Junction, 3.03 miles less than 
the above distance, or 24.67 miles, eliminating the Loop. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, it is unreasonable that 
the High Point, Randleman, Asheboro & Southern Railroad should include 
Randleman Loop in the main line distance between High Point and Ashe- 
boro, both on local or through traffic. This conclusion is in line with the 
Interstate Commerce Commission's findings wherein in their order, 122 I. C. 
C. 166, covering rates on sand, gravel, stone, etc., they find: "In comput- 
ing distances for the application of the foregoing rates, we find that the 
shortest routes shall be used over which carload traffic can be moved with- 
out transfer of lading." 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the High Point, Randleman, Asheboro 
& Southern Railroad Company be, and it is hereby ordered and directed 
to fix the distance between Asheboro and High Point at 24.67 miles, both 
locally and on through freight traffic, tariffs to be corrected accordingly on 
or before March 1, 1929.

6 N. C. Corporation Commission 

IN RE: RULES AND REGULATIONS GOVERNING THE EQUIP- 
MENT AND OPERATIONS OF BOATS AND VESSELS NAVIGAT- 
ING THE WATERS, HARBORS, RIVERS, AND INLAND LAKES 
AND WATERS OF NORTH CAROLINA WHEN TRANSPORTING 
PASSENGERS FOR COMPENSATION. 

Order 

Commission's Authority. The authority under which the Corporation 
Commission is issuing this order is Sections 1037 and 1038, Chapter 21, 
Consolidated Statutes. 

Necessity for Regulation. For many years past most, if not all, of 
the boats operated in North Carolina were operated hi interstate service 
or in the navigable waters of the State and were, therefore, all under 
Federal registry. Many artificial lakes have been created and on these 
artificial lakes, as well as on our natural lakes and rivers, pleasure resorts 
have been established which attract people in large numbers, creating a 
demand for transportation by boat for compensation. 

Rule 1. Definitions. That the word "boat" where used in this order 
shall include every vessel propelled by steam, gas, fluid, fuel oil, naphtha, 
or electric motors, and other vessels propelled by machinery of every kind. 

The word "owner" shall include all persons, corporations, co-partnerships 
and associations, or receivers. 

The word "pilot" shall include the person in charge of the operation 
of such boats for such owners. 

Rule 2. Exemption. Boats operated under Federal license from the 
Bureau of Navigation and Steamboat and Inspection Service are exempted 
from the provisions of this order. 

Rule 3. Launch Liveries. Boats hired as launch liveries and operated 
by the liveryman or his employes are hereby construed as carrying passen- 
gers for hire and are subject to this order; but, if the boat is operated 
by the hirer himself, it is not considered as carrying passengers for hire 
even though he may take other passengers on board; provided, however, 
he doesn't receive compensation for carrying such other passengers. 

Rule 4. Registration of Boats and Pilots. All boats in service on June 
1, 1929, and such as may be put into service on and after that date, shall 
be given a designating name or number and registered with this Com- 
mission. They shall furnish the Commission such other information as 
may be required upon blanks to be furnished by the Commission upon 
request. 

On and after June 1, 1929, no such boat shall be operated by any pilot 
who is not registered with and approved by this Commission. Examina- 
tion may be required as a condition to obtaining such approval and such 
approval may be revoked or suspended by the Commission for misconduct, 
gross negligence, recklessness, intemperance, or violation of the law on 
the part of such pilot, and when revoked, it may be reinstated under such 
conditions as the Commission may impose. 

Rule 5. Life Preservers and Life Saving Devices. Every boat carrying 
passengers for hire shall have life preservers or life belts, or buoyant 
cushions, or ring buoys, or other devices sufficient to sustain afloat every 
person on board. Each life preserver, buoyant cushion, or other device 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 7 

shall be capable of sustaining afloat for a continuous period of twenty- 
four hours an attached weight so arranged that whether said weight be 
submerged or not there shall be a direct downward gravitation pull upon 
such preserver, cushion, or other device of at least twenty-five pounds. 
If a buoyant cushion is furnished for more than one person, its capacity 
must be proportionately greater. 

Life preservers, or buoyant cushions, stuffed or filled with granulated 
cork or other loose granulated material, and pneumatic life preservers 
or cushions are hereby prohibited. 

Planks, gratings, floorings, oars, corks on ropes or fish nets, empty kegs 
or casks, wooden boxes, small boats in tow, etc., are not approved as 
substitutes for the life preservers, described and required in the first 
paragraph; but, wooden life floats made of buoyant wood may be used 
when the dimensions of such floats are not less than four feet in length, 
and twelve inches in width and one and three-fourths inches in thickness, 
if not exceeding twenty-five pounds in weight. If constructed of two 
pieces of wood they shall be securely attached together with wooden pins 
or dowels with one hand-hold at each side midway in the length not less 
than six inches long and two inches in width with a margin of at least 
one inch at the edge of the float. 

Rule 6. Lights. Boats operated after sunset and before sun-up shall 
carry a white light, or lights, so located and at sufficient height above 
the deck, or deck-house, to show all around the boat and a white light on 
the fore part, as near the stem as practical, so fixed as to throw a light 
ten points on each side of the boat. 

Rule 7. Fire Extinguishers. Carbon tetrachloride of foam type of 
fire extinguishers of the make approved by the National Underwriters 
Laboratories shall be carried upon all boats in a readily accessible location. 

Rule 8. Inspection. Boats and equipment subject to regulation under 
this order shall at all times be subject to inspection by the Corporation 
Commission. 

Rule 9. Violations. Owners or pilots violating, or in any manner fail- 
ing to comply with any of the provisions of this order shall be subject 
to prosecution and when convicted shall be liable to penalties provided 
in Section 1106, Chapter 21, of the Consolidated Statutes.

IN RE: APPLICATION OF THE SOUTHERN RAILWAY TO DIS- 
CONTINUE THEIR AGENCY AT SHOALS, N. C, AND MAKE 
SAME A PREPAY STATION. 

Order 
This is an application of the Southern Railway to discontinue its agency 
at Shoals, N. C, a station located on their North Wilkesboro Branch, six 
miles from Donnaha and four miles from Siloam. A hearing in the mat- 
ter was held at Raleigh, Tuesday, May 21st, the Southern Railway being 
represented by Mr. Sydney S. Alderman, Division Counsel, and the citizens 



8 N. C. Corporation Commission 

of Shoals and community by Messrs. O. F. Hauser, Ed Martin and C. W. 
Bottom. 

Revenue statement of Shoals Agency indicates that for two years, from 
June 1, 1926, to May 31, 1928, inclusive, the total revenue at the station 
accruing to the Southern Railway was $2,562.58, which revenue includes 
both freight and passenger and averages $106.77 per month, while the 
agent's salary is stated at $45.00 per month. It further appears that a 
large part of the revenue accruing to this station is derived from the 
movement of fertilizer in carloads. 

Further evidence was produced at the hearing by the Southern Railway 
tending to show that the station is not of sufficient importance to justify 
the maintenance of an agent at this station. 

Protestants contended that great inconvenience would be suffered by 
them and the general community by not having a station agent and par- 
ticularly so as to the shipments of Order Notify fertilizer cars and less 
carload shipments passing through the warehouse. It was conceded by 
protestants that the revenue is not so great at Shoals as in former times 
and that good roads and trucks were undoubtedly playing their part in 
reducing the railroad's revenue at this station. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that in view of the im- 
portance of this station as exhibited by evidence at the hearing, it would 
be unreasonable to require a further continuance of the agency at Shoals, 
and it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Southern Railway be and it is hereby authorized to 
discontinue the agency at this station and make same a regular prepay 
station to be operated in the same manner and under the same rules and 
regulations as other prepay stations on its line.

Docket No. 6790. 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATIONS OF THE COMMON CAR- 
RIERS, BY RAIL, WITHIN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA 
TO CANCEL NORTH CAROLINA EXCEPTION SHEET TO SOUTH- 
ERN CLASSIFICATION, AND ALSO LESS CARLOAD COMMODITY 
RATES BETWEEN POINTS IN NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

By petition of all common carriers, by rail, within the State, dated 
October 31, 1927, except the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company and 
Seaboard Air Line Railway Company, whose applications are dated No- 
vember 9, and 8, respectively, revision of intrastate class rates is sought 
within the State in accordance with findings of the Interstate Commerce 
Commission concerning interstate class rates from, to and between points 
in Southern territory, as shown in reports of that Commission in Southern 
Class Rate Investigation, Docket 13494, (100 I. C. C. 513, 109 I. C. C. 300 
and 133 I. C. C. 200). These petitions seek to make effective, within the 
State, the general Southern rate scale, as promulgated by the Interstate 
Commerce Commission, for application generally throughout Southern ter- 
ritory, which became effective January 15, 1928, and also to make the 
same governed by straight Southern Classification, with certain exceptions 
named in the petitions, including carload ratings on classes lower than 
Class "D". It is stated that these Exceptions are to be separately con- 
sidered and the rates on the excepted commodities are to be later pre- 
sented by the carriers upon petitions filed for appropriate revisions of 
those rates. 

Press notice was given by the Commission to the public of receipt of 
these applications, when filed, and copies of the same were freely distrib- 
uted to all inquirers. A public hearing was held at the office of the Com- 
mission, in Raleigh, August 2-3, 1928. At the conclusion of testimony 
presented by the carriers in justification of the petitions, motion by inter- 
ested shippers present prevailed, and the Commission gave the shippers 



10 N. C. Corporation Commission 

time within which to consider the proposals. A further hearing was 
allowed for presentation of any testimony shippers might desire to present. 

By further joint petition of the carriers, dated January 7, 1929, through 
Chairman Tilford for the Southern Freight Association, and Traffic Mana- 
ger Streyer, for the Short Line Railroads, authority is sought to cancel all 
existing intrastate less than carload commodity rates, and North Carolina 
Exceptions to Southern Classification, with certain exceptions as contained 
in Exhibit "A", attached to petition. The said petition recites that effec- 
tive January 15, 1928, the interstate class rate structure to, from and 
between points in Southern territory was revised in conformity with find- 
ings of the Interstate Commerce Commission in the Southern Class Rate 
Investigation, and a revision of the class rate structure has been accom- 
plished within nearly all of the Southern States. The North Carolina 
Corporation Commission, is therefore, importuned to consider granting 
former petitions, with particular referenec to cancellation of North Caro- 
lina Exception Sheet and less carload commodity rates within the State. 

Press notice was given by the Commission of receipt of this petition, 
and copies were freely distributed to the public upon request. Hearing 
was held April 29, 1929, on this petition, and that part of the former 
petition relating to the same matters, together with the following indi- 
vidual petitions of the carriers, affecting individual commodities appear- 
ing in the Exceptions, or upon commodities which the carriers are seeking 
rate changes: Canned Goods, carload, by Messrs. Streyer and Tilford, 
dated January 14, 1929; Peaches, CL, by Chiarman Tilford, dated Febru- 
ary 11, 1929; Machinery, carload, by Chairman Dulaney, dated November 
28, 1927; Molasses, carload, by General Freight Agent Doss, dated August 
23, 1928, hearing on which was held December 5, 1928; Petroleum, carload, 
by Chairman Barham, dated July 18, 1925; Clay, Concrete or Shale 
Products, carload, by Chairman Barham, dated August 20, 1926; Sugar, 
carload and less, by Messrs. Brown, Streyer and Tilford, dated March 5, 
1928, (hearing on which was held December 5, 1928). 

Since the hearing on April 29, 1929, was upon related issues in the 
cases named, this order will dispose of the petitions in so far as the re- 
lated issues are involved in the cases before the Commission. 

At the hearing upon that part of the general petitions of the carriers, 
first referred to, dated in 1927, and new petition, dated January 7, 1929, 
seeking cancellation of the North Carolina Exception Sheet, and less than 
carload commodity rates, the carriers contented themselves by relying 
wholly upon general testimony in justification of their applications, and 
as the principal reason called attention to Finding 10, of the Interstate 
Commerce Commission's decision in Southern Class Rate Investigation, 
I. C. C. 13494. This testimony was supplemented by testimony of J. N. 
Steadwell, a member of the Southern Classification Committee, on behalf 
of the carriers. He testified in effect that the North Carolina carriers are 
seeking to have the North Carolina Corporation Commission adopt the cur- 
rent Southern Classification for application to intrastate class rates in North 
Carolina, together with Note B, Exceptions, the interstate exceptions in 
Southern territory; that some little information as to the present classifica- 
tion ought to be submitted; that during the past ten years the classification 
work has been carried on by three territorial classification committees, 
whose sole duty it is to correct and supervise all features of this depart- 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 11 

ment of the transportation service; that the present classification repre- 
sents the active work of men devoted to that branch of traffic for twenty 
years; and that, therefore, it is safe to say that descriptions and packing 
specifications, rules, minimum weights, etc., fairly reflect the present 
conditions. 

As above indicated, the testimony did not go into detail as to itemized 
rates it was desired to cancel. The carriers, however, later filed with 
the Commission a statement, dated May 20, 1929, copies of which were 
furnished all parties of record, which indicated by Exhibits "A", "B", and 
"C", attached to the statement, their request more in detail. Exhibit 
"A" contains a list of classification exceptions, which carriers ask imme- 
diate authority to cancel. Exhibit "B" contains list of classification excep- 
tions, carriers do not at this time ask authority to cancel. Exhibit "C" 
contains a list of carload items contained in Exception Sheet, on which it 
is suggested shippers might desire a hearing before cancellation is 
authorized. 

At the April, 1929, hearing, numerous witnesses appeared in behalf of 
shippers and gave testimony relating to individual items which they 
desired continued in the Exception Sheet. No objection was made to the 
carriers' application to cancel parts of the Exception Sheet. It was con- 
tended that conditions required the maintenance of the rates upon certain 
items and that if the Exceptions were cancelled commodity rates should be 
substituted for these items. Although given an opportunity to do so 
carriers filed no brief other than general statement contained in Chair- 
man Hodgkin's letter before referred to, dated May 20, 1929. 

History of the Exception Sheet 

The present North Carolina Exception Sheet is of long standing, having 
been carved out of the North Carolina Classification, to become effective 
October 13, 1914, as a result of the report of the Special Rate Commission, 
appointed by Governor Locke Craig, under whose supervision and direc- 
tion the class rate structure of the State was revised. Although the class 
rates of the State were to be governed by Southern Classification, the 
North Carolina Corporation Commisison was allowed teo make such excep- 
tions as might be necessary, provided that where lower classification ratings 
were then in effect in North Carolina they should remain in effect. Under 
these directions, the Corporation Commission carved out of the then exist- 
ing North Carolina Classification such items as contained lower ratings 
than the then existing Southern Classification and placed such items into 
an Exception Sheet to said Southern Classification. The Exception Sheet, 
thus produced, contained approximately 1,000 items. Subsequently, during 
the Federal administration of the common carriers, the Exception Sheet 
was reduced by the Corporation Commission to approximately 450 items, 
effective December 30, 1919. In that form it has been continued to the 
present in spite of the tendency to uniformity in classification. 

The last Legislature, by Chapter 239, Public Laws, 1929, put in statute 
form the information usually required by the Commission in making 
classification changes. The law reads: 

"Section 1. That section one thousand and seventy-nine, Consoli- 
dated Statutes, be and the same is hereby amended by striking out 
the period at the end of said section and inserting in lieu thereof a 



12 N. C. Corporation Commission 

colon and adding thereafter the following: 'Provided further that 
before any carrier, subject to the jurisdiction of the Corporation Com- 
mission, shall be authorized or empowered to make effective within 
the limits of this State any change in the classification for intrastate 
application of any article transported by freight, intrastate, the car- 
rier, or carriers, proposing said change in classification shall file 
notice of such intention with the Corporation Commission at least 
thirty days in advance of the proposed effective date of such changes 
and shall file with said notice a sworn affidavit in duplicate setting 
forth the name and address, or names and addresses, of the person, 
or persons, by or for whom the change or changes in the classification 
was proposed, with their place, or places, of business and the nature 
of such business, together with the name, or names, of the carrier, 
or carriers, sponsoring such changes, together with the name and 
address, or names and addresses, of all persons, firms or corporations 
who have placed themselves on record as being opposed to the change, 
or changes, contemplated, stating in connection therewith the facts 
and arguments relied upon by both proponents and opponents of such 
proposed changes; and provided further, that after the receipt of such 
notice of a proposed change in the classification of any article, the 
Corporation Commission is authorized to suspend such proposed change 
pending the hearing and decision thereon and may waive the require- 
ment of thirty (30) days notice' ". 

In the absence of such specific information as above called for in the 
present case, the Commission's best judgment must be invoked. 
The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds: 

1. That no sufficient reasons have been shown by the carriers to justify 
the cancellation of all items in the North Carolina Exception Sheet. 

2. That by reason of the many changes in the Southern Classification 
ratings, rules and packing requirements, etc., since the Exception Sheet 
was made, in 1914, and revised ten years ago, thereby bringing the Excep- 
tion Sheeet and Classification nearer together, the comparative small num- 
ber of items it seems necessary to continue in effect, justifies cancellation 
of the Exception Sheet and the establishment in lieu thereof, in com- 
modity form, rates on such items as in the opinion of the Commission 
should be continued in effect, and this will be done. 

3. That since the Exception Sheet is to be cancelled and commodity 
rates are to be made in certain cases, it is necessary that a basis for short 
line rates be provided in each case, and this will be done. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the common rail carriers of the State be, 
and they are hereby ordered and directed to make effective, within the 
State, September 1, 1929, rates, rules, and regulations as contained in the 
Commission's Circulars Nos. 295, 296, 297, 298, 299, 300, 301, 302, 303, 
304, 305, 306, 307, 308, 309, 310, 311, 312, 313, 314, 315, 316, 317, 318, 
319, 320, 321, 322, 323, 324, 325, 326, 327, 328, 329, 330, 331, 332, 333, 
334, 335, 336, 337, 338, and 339, which circulars are hereby made a part 
of this order. 

It is Further Ordered, That the carriers be, and they are hereby 
authorized to cancel the North Carolina Exception Sheet; that in future 
class rates of the State shall be governed by Southern Classification, Agent 
Dulaney's I. C. C. No. 23, and by Notes A, and B, Agent Dulaney's I. C. C.

14 N. C. Corporation Commission 

IN THE MATTER OF APPLICATION OF ATLANTIC COAST LINE 
RAILROAD TO DISCONTINUE PASSENGER TRAINS 52 AND 53 
BETWEEN WELDON AND KINSTON. 

Order 

This application of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad through General 
Superintendent Sibley is dated July 25, 1929, and sets forth that, on ac- 
count of vehicle competition, revenues derived from Passenger Trains 52 
and 53, the former now scheduled to leave Kinston at 3:25 P. M., arriving 
at Weldon at 6:55 P. M.; the latter, leaving Weldon at 9 A. M., arriving at 
Kinston at 2 P. M., have so receded as to make these trains an unreason- 
able expense as compared with revenues. The operating income covering 
passenger and mail is shown as $23,901.85, while the expense is given as 
$71,991.45, for the year ending May 31, 1929; net loss for the year, 
$48,089.60. 

Hearing in the matter was held at Raleigh, September 18, 1929. Con- 
sidering the circumstances and conditions as developed at the hearing, 
Commission is of the opinion and so finds, it would be unreasonable to re- 
quire the continuance of these trains. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Com- 
pany be, and it is hereby authorized to discontinue trains 52 and 53, now 
operating between Weldon and Kinston, effective October 20, 1929.

R. C. BELK SAND COMPANY v. SEABOARD AIR LINE RAILWAY

Order 
This action was instituted before the Commission upon petition of R. C. 
Belk Sand Company, alleging discrimination on the part of the Seaboard 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 15 

Air Line Railway Company in the service extended to it as compared with 
the service extended to the respondents named in the petition. 

At the hearing evidence was introduced by the petitioner for the purpose 
of showing the discrimination alleged in the petition, to which the Sea- 
board Air Line Railway Company responded with evidence as to conditions 
under which the service was rendered to the ptitioner and the two respond- 
ents. The evidence on behalf of the petitioner, among other things, dis- 
closed that it was not then, and had not for some time, beeen in operation 
but that the discrimination complained of existed at the time the petitioner 
was operating and would exist again upon the resumption of operation 
by the petitioner. 

The authority of the Corporation Commission was invoked in the peti- 
tion, evidence and briefs for the purpose of requiring the Seaboard Air 
Line Railway Company to cease and desist from the discrimination alleged. 
In connection with this contention on the part of the petitioner, evidence 
was introduced to show the extent to which the petitioner could operate if 
it desired to resume after the entry of an order by the Commission. 

In view of the evidence that the petitioner was not operating at the 
time the petition was filed and did not at that time definitely commit itself 
to the resumption of operation, and further in view of the fact that since 
the hearing the petitioner has gone into receivership, there is no relief of 
a regulatory nature that can be extended to the petitioner by the Corpora- 
tion Commission; and since the Corporation Commission is a regulatory 
body, there appears to be no basis for an order other than one dismissing 
this action. 

It is, Therefore, Ordered, That the petition be and the same is hereby 
dismissed.

16 N. C. Corporation Commission 

APPLICATION OF NORFOLK SOUTHERN RAILROAD COMPANY 
TO REMOVE TRAINS NOS. 17 AND 18 BETWEEN WASHINGTON, 
N. C, AND RALEIGH, N. C. 

Order 

Application of the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company, dated August 
10, 1929, to discontinue Trains Nos, 17 and 18 operating daily between 
Washington, N. C, and Raleigh, N. C, was heard at Raleigh, December 3. 
Application recites for five months, February, March, April, May and June, 
1929, that earnings of these trains was 17,340.48, while operating expenses 
were $26,875.55; the net loss for this period being $9,435.07. The loss is 
said to be out-of-pocket cost, that is to say, gross earnings are not sufficient 
to pay the out-of-pocket expenses by $9,435.07 for the five months. 

At the hearing petitioners introduced testimony bearing out the figures 
shown in the application and argued the case, contending that it was to 
the best interest of the public that these trains be removed in order to 
conserve the revenues of the Company. Accompanying the application is 
a statement to the effect that in the year 1921 the Norfolk Southern's 
passenger revenue from all its trains was $1,389,582.80. There has been 
a steady decline throughout the years and in 1928 the total passenger 
revenue was $431,901.15 and for the eight months ending August 1, 1929, 
$228,152.11. Local passenger train service on this road has generally been 
reduced as revenue receded, except in the case of the main line between 
Washington and Raleigh there has heretofore been no curtailment. 

Written protest against removal of these trains was received from 
Secretary of the Chamber of Commerce. 

Witnesses were introduced by respondents, who testified as to incon- 
venience and probable retardation and hardship which would be worked 
upon both the fish and dairy interests should these trains be removed, and 
argument was presented that the Norfolk Southern is making money as a 
whole and the Company should provide itself with suitable equipment to 
operate a service in place of Trains Nos. 17 and 18, which would, it is 
alleged cost less and probably make money for the Company and at the 
same time take care of the growing and prosperous fish business. 

The Norfolk Southern Railroad now operates six daily passenger trains 
between Raleigh and Washington and if Trains Nos. 17 and 18 are removed 
there will still be four daily trains, two trains in each direction. 

The Commission is of the opinion and so finds that earnings of Trains 
Nos. 17 and 18 are insufficient to take care of the actual out-of-pocket cost 
of operation and in fact are being run at too great a loss to make it reason- 
able that the Commission order their continuance; that both the milk and 
fish shipments can, with some inconvenience on the part of shippers, be 
handled on Train No. 3, passing Pinetown at 1:16 A. M., and Washington 
2:00 A. M., respectively, and this General Superintendent Dugan testified 
he would arrange to do and likewise cooperate with the Federal Govern- 
ment in arranging to care for the mail now being handled by Trains Nos. 

17 and 18. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company 
be, and it is hereby authorized to discontinue Passenger Trains Nos. 17 and 

18 between Washington and Raleigh, effective December 29, 1929.

APPLICATION OF J. E. TILFORD, CHAIRMAN, SOUTHERN 
FREIGHT ASSOCIATION, ON BEHALF OF ALL COMMON RAIL 
CARRIERS IN NORTH CAROLINA SEEKING APPROVAL OF THIS 
COMMISSION OF RULES 16 AND 17, COVERED BY NATIONAL 
DIVERSION AND RECONSIGNMENT COMMITTEE'S PUBLICA- 
TION ANNOUNCEMENTS NOS. 20 AND 21. 

Order 

This application, through Chairman Tilford, is dated July 27, 1929, and 
hearing in the matter was held at Raleigh, December 17; the standard 
rail carriers of the State were represented by G. M. Nolen, Commerce 
Agent, of the Southern Railway, Washington, D. C. Respondents appear- 
ing in opposition were A. J. Whitman, T. M., American Agricultural Chemi- 
cal Company, representing his own Company and also F. S. Royster Guano 
Company and Davison Chemical Company. Appearing in the interest of 
the American Agricultural Chemical Company were also C. E. Norvell, 
T. L. Smith and C. D. Henderson. The Proximity Manufacturing Com- 
pany, J. E. Latham Company and Rucker Bonded Warehouse Company 
were represented by C. W. Strickland. 

Petitioners testified at the hearing to the effeet that Rules 16 and 17 
of the Uniform Diversion and Reconsignment Code are a result of growth 
in the general code of rules as originally adopted back in 1918. 

They do not apply, in the South, to fresh or green fruits, fresh or 
green vegetables (including potatoes and onions), fresh berries, grapes 
and melons. 

They do not apply on shipments or cars consigned to or ordered for 
delivery on public delivery tracks. 

They apply only on cars placed on hold tracks and held only for 
surrender of original bill of lading or written order, and necessitating 
subsequent movement of cars to place of delivery on private or industry 
tracks. 

That these rules have been passed upon by an arbitrator of the Interstate 
Commerce Commission, and approved by the National Industrial Traffic 
League and the Southern Traffic League, and likewise by several State Com- 
missions in the South, and that unless these rules are approved for appli- 
cation within North Carolina discrimination will exist as between the 
interstate regulations and those applying to intrastate traffic within the 
State. 

Respondents, who, generally speaking, handle fertilizer in carloads and 
cotton, in carloads, opposed the adoption of these rules for intrastate appli- 
cation within North Carolina upon the grounds that they would work a 
hardship upon fertilizer dealers, in particular, located at small outlying 
points who have private or assigned sidings and where cars usually reach 
destination points ahead of arrival of bills of lading at banks and it is im- 
possible in such cases that delivery of bills of lading be made to station 
agents within 24 hours after arrival of cars, in which cases the carriers 
seek to charge $5.85 per car for the service of handling the said cars which 
have to be switched from hold tracks to private or assigned sidings. The 
same general effect of the rules would likewise apply to cotton, carload. 

After hearing the contentions of both sides of the controversy the Com- 
mission is of the opinion that reasonably complete cooperation between 



18 N. C. Corporation Commission 

shippers, carriers and receivers should prohibit accrual of these charges, 
or in other words, make it unnecessary that the rule work any hardship 
on either party. 

It is, generally speaking, desirable that rules and regulations be uniform 
as far as practicable, and inasmuch as these rules have been passed upon 
by various bodies consisting of committees on uniformity in connection 
with a member of the Interstate Commerce Commission and traffic organi- 
zations within the South, as well as State Commissions in several of the 
Southern States, wherein the rules have been allowed to become effective, 
it would appear to the Commisison reasonable that the same at least be 
given a trial within this State. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the common carriers of the State be, and 
they are hereby authorized to make Rules 16 and 17 effective within North 
Carolina February 15, 1930, for a period of one year, or until February 15, 
1931. 

It is Further Ordered, That if and when carriers' application is made 
to this Commission for further application of these rules within the State, 
they furnish with such application a statement showing to what extent 
collections have been made upon carload traffic as a result of these rules, 
this statement being a prerequisite to a consideration by the Commission of 
further application of the rules on intrastate traffic within North Carolina.

RALEIGH GRANITE COMPANY v. CAROLINA SOUTHERN RAIL- 
WAY COMPANY. 

Order 

Petition in the above matter is dated August 30, 1929, and hearing took 
place in the Commission's office, in Raleigh, December 18, 1929. Both 
parties agreed with the Commission it would be well that briefs be filed 
within ten days, setting out facts and argument relied upon to enable the 
Commission to properly pass upon the case. Briefs have now reached the 
Commission, the Raleigh Granite Company being represented by Messrs. 
Parham and Lassiter, Attorneys; and the Carolina Southern Railway by 
Messrs. J. H. Matthews and John H. Small, Attorneys. 

The facts in substance are as follows : 

About the 20th day of May, 1928, there was begun a movement of crushed 
stone to Windsor, N. C, shipped by the Raleigh Granite Company from its 
Rolesville quarry, on the A. C. L. Railroad, at rate of $1.25 per ton; and 
from its Neverson quarry, on the Norfolk Southern Railroad, at $1.50 per 
ton. All told the movement amounted to 879 cars, however, the complaint 
alleging overcharges, and the answer to the complaint alleging under- 
charges cover a considerably less number of cars and are fully set out in 
memorandum showing figures, which is made a part of the complaint and 
answer. 

The tariffs under which the above movement took place provides minimum 
weight shall be 90 per cent of marked capacity of cars. The Carolina 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 19 

Southern Railway Company advised its connections of its inability to 
handle cars in excess of 130,000 pounds gross weight, car and contents, 
and this information was conveyed by both the Atlantic Coast Line and 
Norfolk Southern to shippers. When the movement started some cars 
were loaded above 130,000 pounds, car and contents, and the carrier trans- 
ferred some of the ladings and charged the cost thereof to the shippers. 
Still some other cars, which were overloaded, that is beyond the 130,000 
pounds gross car and contents, moved through to destination without 
question. 

Some cars reaching destination were charged for by the Carolina South- 
ern Railway on basis of 90 per cent marked capacity, while other cars 
were delivered by them on basis of billed weight, which appears to have 
been actual weight of contents, and which are, no doubt, some of the cars 
upon which the Carolina Southern Railway now alleges undercharges and 
is seeking to offset these undercharges as against overcharges alleged by 
complainant. 

The Commission had before it a similar complaint in the case of Raleigh 
Granite Company versus Norfolk Southern, order of the Commission dated 
October 2, 1925, on movement of stone from Graystone, N. C, to Wilson, 
N. C. 

It is apparent that the carriers cannot publish rates carrying minimum 
weights to which shippers are not allowed to load and at the same time 
collect revenue based upon such minimum weights. In this case the tariffs 
provide for minimum based upon 90 per cent marked capacity of car, and 
aside from the tariffs instructions were issued to the effect that the Caro- 
lina Southern Railway Company could not accept cars loaded beyond 
130,000 pounds gross car and contents, amounting to the same as saying 
they could not comply with the tariff. 

The Carolina Southern Railway seems to contend that it should be 
allowed to charge for the minimum of 90 per cent marked capacity of car 
regardless of the* fact shipper was not allowed to load on that basis, but 
that shippers should have been able to figure out for himself how much 
stone it would take in each car to produce a weight of 130,000 pounds gross 
car and contents, and in that way avoid either overweight or underweight, 
and this, it appears, was expected of shippers notwithstanding scales were 
not provided at either shipping points. upon which to determine weight of 
cars, all of which had to be weighed at Wilson or Rocky Mount. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that the carriers by issu- 
ing a tariff carrying stipulated minimum weights and filing same with 
the Commission, at the same time issuing instructions to transportation 
departments which would prohibit shipper from complying with said tariffs 
in the matter of minimum weights, makes it unreasonable that shippers be 
held to strict accountability for minimum weight of cars, and particularly 
so where carriers fail to provide scales at shipping points. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the Carolina Southern Railway Company 
be, and it is hereby ordered and directed to make refund to the Raleigh 
Granite Company, complainant in this case, on or before March 10, 1930, 
the sum of nine hundred fifty-eight dollars and seventeen cents ($958.17) 
with interest at six (6%) per cent from September 1, 1928, this amount 
being the overcharges claimed by the Raleigh Granite Company, based upon 
actual weight of contents of cars as contained in the movement, these

figures having been verified by both Mr. Baucom, for the Carolina Southern 
Railway, and by Mr. Shaw, for Raleigh Granite Company, as being correct.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE AMERICAN TOBACCO COMPANY TO 
REQUIRE THE DURHAM AND SOUTH CAROLINA RAILROAD 
COMPANY TO CONSTRUCT A SIDETRACK IN THE COUNTY AND 
CITY OF DURHAM, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

This matter coming on to be heard by the Corporation Commission on 
the twelfth day of February, 1930, the Commission finds: 

That the Petitioner, The American Tobacco Company, is a corporation, 
created and existing under and by virtue of the laws of the State of New 
Jersey, and is the owner of a large tobacco and cigarette manufactory in 
the City of Durham and is, also, the owner of large leaf tobacco storage 
warehouses in the County of Durham beyond the corporate limits of said 
City. 

That the Durham and South Carolina Railroad Company is a railroad 
corporation which owns a line of railroad extending from a point on the 
line of railroad of the Durham and Southern Railway Company a short 
distance southeast of the City of Durham, in Durham County, to the Town 
of Bonsai, in Chatham County, where it connects with the line of railroad 
of the Seaboard Air Line Railway Company, and also to the Town of 
Duncan, where it connects with the Norfolk Southern Railroad Company. 

That the Petitioner, The American Tobacco Company, is without suffi- 
cient or adequate railroad facilities for the proper conduct of its business 
in and near the City of Durham, and, in order that said business may be 
properly carried on and expanded, if desired, it is necessary that the side- 
track described and referred to by the Petitioner in its petition be con- 
structed and operated. 

That it appears that the proportion of revenue accruing from the opera- 
tion of said sidetrack will be sufficient within five years to pay the expense 
and cost of construction to said Durham and South Carolina Railroad 
Company. 

That the Petitioner filed with this Commission its petition pursuant to 
the provisions of Section 1044 of the North Carolina Code of 1927, by 
which it prayed an order of this Commission requiring and directing the 
Durham and South Carolina Railroad Company to construct and operate 
the sidetrack therein referred to over and along the route shown on the 
blueprint map attached to said petition, said route or line of the proposed 
sidetrack being marked in red upon said blueprint. A copy of said petition 
was delivered to the President of the Durham and South Carolina Railroad 
Company, which said Company duly filed with the Corporation Commission 
it? answer to the said petition, reference to which is hereby expressly 
made for the contents thereof, and by said answer acknowledged the 
receipt of a copy of the petition herein referred to and expressly waived 
notice of this proceeding and of the time or times of any hearings in con- 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 21 

nection herewith or of the making of any orders or decrees herein ; admitted 
the truth of the allegations of said petition and expressed its willingness to 
abide any order or judgment which might be made and entered in this 
proceeding, and also waived the provisions of Section 1044 of the North 
Carolina Code of 1927, retsricting the authority of this Commission to 
require railroad companies to construct sidetracks more than five hundred 
feet in length, and expressly consented that this Commission might, in this 
proceeding, order the said railroad company to construct the sidetrack re- 
ferred to in the said petition; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Durham and South Carolina Railroad Company be, 
and it hereby is, required and directed to construct the sidetrack mentioned 
and described in the petition and answer in this proceeding along, or sub- 
stantially along, the route indicated and marked in red on the blueprint 
attached to the petition filed herein; and, after it is so constructed to 
operate, or constructed to operate, or cause to be operated, such engines, 
locomotives, cars, and trains thereon and thereover as may be necessary 
and desirable for the proper conduct of the business of the Petitioner, 
The American Tobacco Company; and, it is 

Further Ordered, That the Petitioner advance the cost of constructing 
said sidetrack, which shall be repaid to the said Petitioner by the Durham 
and South Carolina Railroad Company out of the revenues derived by it 
from the operation of said sidetrack during the first five years of its 
operation; but the said railroad company shall not be required to pay 
the Petitioner, The American Tobacco Company, any amount in excess 
of the net revenues during the said five-year period.

Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 23 

It is pointed out that the rates from Norfolk are commodity rates, 
whereas the rates from Wilmington are class rates, and the complainant 
seeks to have reasonable commodity rates established from Wilmington, 
which will be more in keeping, distance considered, with present rates 
from, Norfolk, Va. 

Hearing in this matter was held at the office of the Commission, in 
Raleigh, March 4, 1930, at which, upon formal application in writing, 
England, Walton & Company, Inc., of Philadelphia, Pa., was allowed to 
intervene and become a party to the proceeding. 

Complainant introduced evidence showing that to twenty-one destina- 
tions in Western North Carolina, average distance from Norfolk being 423 
miles, the average rate is 35.6 cents per 100 pounds, or an average of 24.4 
per cent of first class as measured by the general Southern class rate scale, 
while from Wilmington to the same points of destination the average 
distance is 335.2 miles, the average rate 37.3 cents, which is 28.5 per cent 
of first class rate as measured by general Southern class rate scale, or an 
average difference in distance in favor of Wilmington of 87 miles, and an 
average disadvantage in rate of about 2 cents per 100 pounds, when com- 
pared with Norfolk. 

Other rate comparisons are given both in Southern territory and Eastern 
territory tending to support the view that rates in general on green, salted 
hides, in carloads, range from 21.5 to 27 per cent of the first class rates 
from and to the same points, when measured by use of the general South- 
ern class rate scale. 

Carriers point out that Wilmington has the same rates today as in effect 
from Norfolk when applied to interstate traffic and express a willingness 
to make these same rates apply to intrastate traffic. It is conceded that the 
present Norfolk rates were made arbitrarily something less than Balti- 
more, and without regard to distance, but it is contended they are low 
rates and it is urged the situation should not be disturbed pending general 
revision of hide rates, which it is alleged will soon be necessary on account 
of Fourth Section requirements. Statement is made that the Southern 
carriers believe that 30 per cent of the first class rates, under the general 
Southern class rate scale, would be reasonable basis for hides, in carloads, 
in this territory. This basis, if applied strictly from both Norfolk and 
Wilmington to the destinations in question, would give Wilmington an 
average rate of about four cents per 100 pounds less than from Norfolk. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that the fact that the 
present hide rates from Norfolk, Va., to North Carolina points were made 
arbitrarily less than the rates from Baltimore, is not conclusive that the 
same rates would be reasonable to apply from Wilmington for an average 
of 87 miles less distance than Norfolk; 

That following precedent in making rates on other commodities, it is 
likely that rates on green, salted hides should and will be made generally 
a certain percentage of the first class rates, and that until the hide rates 
are dealt with in general, the evidence of record in this case will justify 
rates made no higher than 25 per cent of the first class rates under gen- 
eral Southern class rate scale. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That carriers named above be, and they are 
hereby ordered and directed to put in force and effect on or before April 
20, 1930, rates on green, salted hides, carload minimum 36,000 pounds,

N. C. Corporation Commission 



It is pointed out that the rates from Norfolk are commodity rates, 
whereas, the rates from Wilmington are class rates, and complainant 
seeks to have reasonable commodity rates established from Wilmington in 
keeping, distance considered, with present rates from Norfolk. 

Hearing in this matter was held at the office of the Commission, in 
Raleigh, August 19, 1930. Complainant introduced exhibits to show pres- 
ent distances and rates from both Norfolk and Wilmington to these tannery 
points, all of which points are located upon the Southern Railway lines in 
Western North Carolina, and set up the contention that Wilmington is 
entitled to a rate position on these commodities in line, distance considered, 
with rates from Norfolk measured by applying from Wilmington average 
rates based upon 28 per cent of first class rates, under general Southern 
Class Rate Scale, known as K-2 scale, which is the average percentage the 
present commodity rates from Norfolk bear to the first class rates, which 
first class rates are now upon basis of the so-called K-2 scale, the destina- 
tion points to be grouped in the same manner as they are now grouped 
from Norfolk. 

Further testimony was introduced tending to show there are commodity 
rates in effect on tanning materials from Canton, N. C, to points in Vir- 
ginia and Georgia, which are in every case less than 28 per cent of first 
class. To be exact, an average of 23.4 per cent of first class to the 13 
points of destination shown in the exhibit. 

The carriers took the general position that it is conceded by 11 concerned 
that commodity rates should be established from Wilmington, such rates, 
however, should be on an exact parity with Norfolk; that the present 
Norfolk rates were made arbitrarily 3% cents per 100 pounds less than 
Baltimore without reference to distance and that distance should be dis- 
regarded from Wilmington and the rates arbitrarily made the same as 
from Norfolk. There are important exceptions to this, in that the Atlan- 
tic Coast Line Railroad and Seaboard Air Line Railway, which are the 
initial lines at Wilmington, while standing generally upon the principle 
of exact port equalization, these two carriers, nevertheless, proposed cer- 
tain rates in this case based upon a mileage scale especially constructed 
for the purpose, which if applied will result in rates from Wilmington 
some less than Norfolk and which it claimed would make the rates from 
Wilmington consistent with the group rates from Norfolk. 

The two proposals would result as follows:

It will be observed that complainant's proposal would result in differ- 
ences of SV2 in Andrews group to 5% in Elkin group in favor of Wilming- 
ton, while carriers' proposal ranges in differences from "0" at Andrews 
to 2% at Morganton. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so finds, that the fact that the 
current rates on tanning extracts from Norfolk, Va., to these tannery 
points were made arbitrarily lower than rates from Baltimore is no sound 
reason why the same rates would be reasonable to apply from Wilmington, 
which point is located upon an average distance of 89 miles nearer points 
of destination than is Norfolk. 

The Commission further finds that inasmuch as the Norfolk rates are 
arbitrarily upon group basis without regard to distance, it follows that it 
will be both reasonable and logical to make Wilmington rates to similar 
groups arbitrarily something less than rates from Norfolk. 

It is Therefore Ordered, That the carriers named above be, and they 
are hereby ordered and directed to put in force on or before September 10, 
1930, on tanning extracts and tanning materials, as described in Item 
720, of Agent Cottrell's I. C. C. 727, and Item 4472, Agent Speiden's I. C. C. 
1367, rates from Wilmington, N. C, to points of destination, as shown in 
above named tariffs, in Western North Carolina to which rates are pub- 
lished from Norfolk made 2 1 /£ cents per 100 pounds less than current rates 
from Norfolk, Va.

IN RE: CANCELLATION OF FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE NO. 28, 
COVERING MOTOR VEHICLE PASSENGER OPERATION BE- 
TWEEN WINSTON-SALEM AND ALBEMARLE AND BETWEEN 
WILMINGTON AND CAROLINA BEACH. 

Order 

It coming to the attention of the Commission that the holder of the 
franchise certificate authorizing passenger bus transportation between 
Winston-Salem and Albemarle via Walburg, Thomasville and Denton over 
county highways and between Wilmington and Carolina Beach via county 
highways has failed to comply with the law with reference to such opera- 
tors in many respects, to wit: failure to pay his bus station rent, comply 
with the insurance requirements, etc.; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the said certificate No. 28 be, and the same is hereby 
cancelled as of November 21, 1928. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

This 21st day of November, 1928. Clerk.

IN RE: W. W. CALL MOTOR COMPANY, PETITIONER, v. LEE 
MEADLOCK, OPERATING AS STATESVILLE-TAYLORSVILLE- 
LENOIR BUS LINE, RESPONDENT. 

Order — Extra Copy 

In this case it was developed that when bus franchises were originally 
issued there were several operators operating between North Wilkesboro 
and Statesville, one of which was acquired by Lee Meadlock, who, in turn, 
sold the schedules acquired thereunder to W. JT. Colvard and signed a con- 
tract with him to the effect that he would interfere in no manner with the 
future operation of the said line. W. T. Colvard, in turn, sold this opera- 
tion to the W. W. Call Motor Company and delivered to it his contract 
with Meadlock. 

The petitioner now claims that Meadlock, by virtue of the purchase of 
another franchise, is operating over this road between Taylorsville and 
Statesville; and, since this involves the question of contract, over which 
this Commission has no control, it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the petition be, and is hereby dismissed. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 30th day of July, 1929. Clerk. 

IN RE: CANCELLATION OF FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE NO. 28, 
CENTRAL COACH LINES, INC., HIGH POINT, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 
Mr. H. F. Moore, an officer of the Central Coach Lines, Inc., cited by the 
Clerk of the Commission, in accordance with the statute, to show cause 
why Franchise Certificate No. 28 should not be cancelled under Paragraph 
9, Subsection (b), Section 10, Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927, and the 
case coming on to be heard in accordance with said notice at eleven o'clock 
a. m., August 13, 1929, the respondent was represented by Mr. John W. 
Hester, attorney-at-law, Durham, N. C, who proposed the appointing of a 
trustee to handle the business of the express line pending its reorganiza- 



38 N. C. Corporation Commission 

tion over a period which would give it opportunity to collect lease rentals 
and pay its indebtedness. 

For several years this line has been operated in a very negligent man- 
ner, and its manner of operation has done more to injure motor express 
business in this State than any other operation on our list. Debts have 
been incurred and breaches of contracts made by the company until its 
credit has been destroyed. The trucks in which the company has an 
interest are in danger of being repossessed by the creditors. Lax manage- 
ment has let such equipment run down until truck movements are uncer- 
tain. Collect on delivery shipments have gone unsatisfied until many of 
the best shippers on the line have sought other transportation facilities. 
It is expressing the facts mildly when it is stated that it is not unusual 
for tax checks to be repeatedly returned unpaid. Officers of this company 
have been notified many times of its condition, and the question of better- 
ment has been discussed often with them without result; therefore, it is 
the opinion of the Commission that in order to better this service and 
improve the standing of such transportation generally that it is necessary 
to cancel the franchise certificate of this operator and if possible secure 
others who are more responsible and who are more responsive to the 
interests of the public; therefore, for failure to carry out the rules, regu- 
lations and instructions of the Commission and because of general neglect 
in complying with provisions of the statute, it is 

Ordered, That Franchise Certificate No. 28, dated July 1, 1928, and 
issued to Central Coach Lines, Inc., High Point, N. C, be, and the same 
is hereby, cancelled as of date of this order. It is 

Further Ordered, That the Tri-City Motor Express, High Point, N. C, 
be granted franchise certificate to operate motor freight service over 
Highway No. 10 from Greensboro to High Point and over Highway No. 77 
from High Point to Winston-Salem, and that the Carolina Storage and 
Distributing Company, Raleigh, North Carolina, be granted a franchise 
certificate for similar operation over Highway No. 10 between Raleigh 
aand Greensboro. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

This 13th day of August, 1929. Clerk. 



IN RE: CANCELLATION OF FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE NO. 28, 
CENTRAL COACH LINES, INCORPORATED, HIGH POINT, N. C. 

Order Overruling Exceptions 

This Commission, after due notice and hearing, issued an order, dated 
August 13, 1929, cancelling Franchise Certificate No. 28, held by the 
Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, of High Point, North Carolina. The 
respondent was represented at this hearing by H. F. Moore, manager of 
the Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, and its counsel, John W. Hester. 

The respondent, the Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, through its 
attorney, John W. Hester, now files exceptions to said order, in which it 
is alleged that the respondent was given no notice of the contemplated 
cancellation of the said Franchise Certificate No. 28. 

It appears from the record of this case, in the office of the Commission, 
that the Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, H. F. Moore, manager, High 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 39 

Point, North Carolina, was notified in letter, dated April 4, 1929, to show 
cause on or before April 15th why his Franchise Certificate No. 28 should 
not be cancelled for leasing his operation without first having secured the 
approval of the Commission, as required under the statute. 

The said Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, through its manager, Mr. 
Moore, with the lessees appeared and made statements to the effect that 
under the contract with the lessees all shippers would be paid all out- 
standing C. 0. D. bills. Action with reference to cancelling the Franchise 
Certificate was continued and was conditionally and indefinitely postponed, 
pending the joint submission by lessor and lessees of a list of the C. O. D. 
indebtedness of the Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, with receipts, 
showing that same had been paid or satisfactory arrangement made with 
the creditors for deferred payment. Consistent with the experience of 
the Commission, the lessees were unable to get action from respondent 
with reference to carrying out the terms of the contract and they, accord- 
ingly, advised the Commission that since the amount of the indebtedness 
was so much in excess of what the said Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, 
had represented, and since the lease rentals were not being used by the 
said Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, to reduce same, they were surren- 
dering the said lease, which had been conditionally and temporarily ap- 
proved by the Commission pending financial adjustment. This notice was 
given by the lessees to the Commission on August 9th, and both lessees 
of the said Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, and H. F. Moore, manager 
of the Central Coach Lines, Incorporated, were advised orally that on 
Tuesday, August 13, 1929, at ten o'clock a. m., the Commission would 
further discuss the deferred question of the disposition of the said Fran- 
chise Certificate No. 28. 

Hearing was had on August 13, 1929, which resulted in the order of 
the Commission of the same date, revoking the said Franchise Certificate 
No. 28. It is now, therefore, 

Ordered, That each and all of the exceptions be, and they are hereby 
overruled. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 6th day of November, 1929. Clerk.

Order 

Notice having been duly served by the Clerk of the Commission on J. T. 
Carroll, operator of Carroll's Motor Express, Hallsboro, North Carolina, 
in letter dated August 13, 1929, giving him until August 20, 1929, to 
settle delinquent franchise tax with the Department of Revenue and pay 
all outstanding C. O. D. accounts in order to continue in force his franchise 
certicate covering the operation, and information now received by the 
Commission being to the effect that settlement of tax has not yet been made ; 
it is, therefore, under authority granted in Section 10, Paragraph (a), 
subsection (1), Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927, 

Ordered, That Franchise Certificate No. 223, issued to J. T. Carroll, 
operating as Carroll's Motor Express, Hallsboro, North Carolina, covering

Decisions and Adjustments op Complaints 41 

IN RE: PETITION OF THE EASTERN PIEDMONT TRANSPORTA- 
TION COMPANY. 

Order 

This cause came on to be heard upon the petition, argument and con- 
tentions of both the petitioner and the opponents, and was submitted upon 
the petition, argument and contentions of the parties. 

The petition seeks a franchise certificate over North Carolina Highway 
Route No. 10 from Raleigh to Durham, thence over Highway No. 13 to 
the North Carolina-Virginia state line. It appears that the Carolina 
Coach Company holds a certificate over Highway Route No. 10 from Raleigh 
to Durham and that the Durham-Roxboro-Danville Line holds a certificate 
over Highway Route No. 13 to Roxboro, which is only a short distance 
south of the North Carolina-Virginia state line. An intrastate franchise 
certificate is sought for the purpose of operating between Raleigh, North 
Carolina, via Durham and the North Carolina-Virginia state line. 

There appears to be no public convenience and necessity which requires 
the granting of additional service over the proposed route, due to the 
fact that the operations between Raleigh and Durham and between Durham 
and Roxboro are sufficient to meet the demands of the traveling public 
or its reasonable convenience and necessity. 

The applicant having failed to show that the reasonable public con- 
venience and necessity requires the granting of additional service over the 
routes described, there is no authority vested in the Commission for 
issuing the certificate sought. Upon the findings of the Commission, 
therefore, upon the petition, argument, and contentions of the parties it is 

Ordered, Adjudged and Decreed, That the petition be, and it is hereby 
dismissed. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 31st day of December, 1929. Clerk. 



IN RE: APPLICATION OF THE EASTERN PIEDMONT TRANSPOR- 
TATION COMPANY. 

Order 

This cause came on to be heard upon the petition seeking a motor vehicle 
franchise certificate for the privilege of operating a bus line between 
Raleigh and Greensboro via Nelson and Chapel Hill over routes Nos. 10,. 
54 and 10 and was heard upon the petition, argument and evidence of 
both the applicant and protestant. 

It appears to the Commission that the proposed operation duplicates 
the operation of the Carolina Coach Company as to the points served 
although not over the same routes over which the Carolina Coach Company 
operates, while it is true the operation serving Chapel Hill is from 
Durham to Chapel Hill and return, or the reverse direction. There is a 
shortening of the distance required for the operation by the routes pro- 
posed by the petition, although it is also apparent from the contentions, 
argument and evidence that the establishment of the operation as pro- 
posed will result in a competition for through passengers from Raleigh 
to Greensboro as between the Eastern Piedmont Transportation Company 



42 N. C. Corporation Commission 

and the Carolina Coach Company. The new business that could be devel- 
oped on the proposed route, which is not now served by the present opera- 
tor between Raleigh and Greensboro, and between Durham and Chapel 
Hill, could not possibly support the operation; and, the record does not 
disclose the necessity nor the demand for additional service between Greens- 
boro and Raleigh. As to the operation from Chapel Hill to Durham, it 
does not appear that any public demand is felt other than the mere absence 
of an operation over the route proposed by the petition. 

In view of these facts, public convenience and necessity does not demand 
the establishment of the additional operation; and, in the absence of a 
finding to the effect that the public convenience and necessity will be 
served by the granting of the franchise certificate for the operation pro- 
posed, the Commission is without authority to grant a certificate; therefore, 
it is 

Ordered, Adjudged and Decreed, That the petition be, and is hereby 
dismissed. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 31st day of December, 1929. Clerk. 

IN RE: PETITION OF THE SAFETY TRANSIT COMPANY, 
INCORPORATED. 

Order 

This cause coming on to be heard upon the petition, and being considered 
upon the argument, statements, and contentions of the petitioner and 
protestants, and it appearing therefrom that the application seeks a motor 
vehicle franchise certificate for an intrastate operation from Rockingham 
to the North Carolina-South Carolina state line and, for the purpose of 
operating a schedule under said franchise, is seeking also permission to 
operate over the State Highway from Sanford to Rockingham without 
taking on at either point passengers destined to the other point and any 
point between; and, it further appearing that the Camel City Coach Com- 
pany, one of the protestants, has not operated schedules from Rockingham 
to the North Carolina-South Carolina state line under its motor vehicle 
franchise certificate granted November 1, 1927, and cancelled by request 
of the Camel City Coach Company, effective May 9, 1928, and that, there- 
fore, there is no outstanding motor vehicle franchise certificate intrastate 
from Rockingham to the North Carolina-South Carolina state line; and 
it further appearing that the public convenience and necessity justify the 
granting of the franchise certificate; it is, now, therefore, 

Ordered, Adjudged and Decreed by the Commission 

First: That the Safety Transit Company be, and it is hereby granted 
a motor vehicle franchise certificate to operate over North Carolina High- 
way Route No. 50 from Rockingham to the North Carolina-South Carolina 
state line. 

Second: That the Safety Transit Company, its agents, employees and 
representatives shall not sell tickets or transport passengers entering 
buses either at Sanford or Rockingham destined to the other, or to any 
point between these two points. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 31st day of December, 1929. Clerk. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 43 

IN RE: ORDER OF THE CORPORATION COMMISSION OF DECEM- 
BER 31, 1929, WITH REFERENCE TO THE SAFETY TRANSIT 
COMPANY OPERATING INTERSTATE. 

Order 

The Commission issued an order on the the 31st day of December, 1929, 
granting to the Safety Transit Company the right to operate buses between 
Rockingham, North Carolina, and the North Carolina-South Carolina state 
line, over Route No. 50, and provided: 

"Second: That the Safety Transit Company, its agents, employees 
and representatives shall not sell tickets or transport passengers enter- 
ing buses either at Sanford or Rockingham destined to the other* or 
to any point betwen these two points." 

Objection has been made to the language of this order, with reference 
to the limitations set up therein; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That that part of the Commission's Order of December 31, 
1929, quoted above be stricken out and that the following be substituted 
therefor : 

Second: That the Safety Transit Company, its agents, employees 
and representatives shall transport on State Highway Route No. 50 
for that part of the route lying between Sanford and Rockingham only 
such passengers as are traveling in interstate commerce. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 20th day of February, 1930. Clerk. 



IN RE: APPLICATION OF THE SOUTHERN MOTOR TRANSIT 
COMPANY, INCORPORATED, OF VIRGINIA, FOR MOTOR VE- 
HICLE FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE. 

Order 

This cause came on to be heard on the petition, argument and contentions 
of the petitioner and the opponents, and was submitted for consideration 
upon such petition, argument and contentions. 

The petitioner seeks a franchise certificate over Highway Routes Nos. 
50, 702, 70 and 50 between the North Carolina- Virginia state line and the 
North Carolina-South Carolina state line, proposing in connection with such 
an intrastate certificate to operate only an interstate service. 

All the routes named in the petition are now covered by intrastate fran- 
chise certificates heretofore issued by this Commisison, except as between 
Rockingham and the North Carolina-South Carolina state line over High- 
way Route No. 50. The intrastate service rendered under these certifi- 
cates appears to be sufficient to meet the reasonable public convenience 
and necessity and no evidence is offered in support of a finding that the 
reasonable public convenience and necessity requires the establishment of 
an additional intrastate service. 

Under the Bus Law, Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927, the Commission 
is not authorized to issue an intrastate franchise certificate to be used in 
connection with an operation devoted solely to an interstate service. The 
Commission has jurisdiction to require an interstate operator to comply 



44 N. C. Corporation Commission 

with all rules and regulations which, according to law, fall under the classi- 
fication of the exercise of the police power, but the issuance of an intrastate 
franchise certificate for use solely in connection with an interstate franchise 
tion is not authorized. The petitioner seeking the intrastate franchise 
certificate, the only certificate which Chapter 136, Public Laws of 1927, 
authorizes this Commission to issue, and failing to submit evidence justi- 
fying a finding that the reasonable public convenience and necessity require 
the additional service, is not entitled to the franchise certificate sought. 
Upon the findings of the Commission, therefore, it is 

Ordered, Adjudged and Decreed, That the petition be, and it is hereby 
dismissed. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 31st day of December, 1929. Clerk. 

IN RE: PETITION OF THE DURHAM PUBLIC SERVICE COMPANY 
CONCERNING STREET CAR AND BUS SERVICE AND FARES. 

Order 

Petitioner in this case comes to the Commission with an agreement with 
the City of Durham, with reference to discontinuing the remaining street 
cars in service in the City of Durham and the substitution therefor of 
motor vehicle buses. 

Prior to this time, the Petitioner has abandoned street car service on 
several streets in the City of Durham and has substituted therefor motor 
buses. This has proved so satisfactory that the city has now agreed to 
the discontinuance of all street car service for a trial period of ninety 
days in order to try out bus service on Main street. The Company has 
purchased a number of buses, which are now ready to be placed in opera- 
tion under this agreement. 

The agreement between the Petitioner and the City of Durham also 
affects the fares to be charged for the new service. At the request of 
the City, the Company has agreed to charge a top rate for casual rider 
of ten cents and to continue its former rate of four fares for thirty cents; 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Petitioner be, and is hereby authorized to discontinue 
its street car service in the City of Durham and to substitute therefor 
motor vehicle bus service and to charge a fare of ten cents for the casual 
rider and to sell four tokens for thirty cents, effective Sunday, January 26, 
1930, at 12:01 a. m. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 22nd day of January, 1930. Clerk. 

IN RE: FRANCHISE CERTIFICATE NO. 284 ISSUED TO COASTAL 
COACH COMPANY, INC., ELIZABETHTOWN, N. C. 

Order 

Because of the abandonment of service on the line between Fayetteville 
and Wilmington via Elizabethtown, Highways Nos. 21 and 20, and between 
Wilmington and Southport via Supply, Highways Nos. 20, 30 and 130, it is 

Ordered, That Franchise Certificate Nf>. 284 be, and it is hereby, can- 
celled effective immediately. It is

This 10th day of February, 1930. 

IN RE: BUS STATION AT KINSTON. 

Order 

The Commission included the town of Kinston in its first order locating 
Bus Stations. The Seashore Transportation Company, being the largest 
operator there, complied therewith by obtaining a place at a rental of $40.80 
per month, agreeing to assume $25.00 and let Southerland Brothers and J. 
M. Mitchell pay the remaining $15.00. So far as this office is advised, the 
other operators have not participated in its maintenance, therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the room now used as a Union Bus Station back of the 
drugstore in Kinston is hereby approved, until further order, as the Union 
Bus Station in said town and that the monthly rental of $40.00 shall be 
divided between the operators as follows: 

The Seashore Transportation Company $25.00 

Southerland Brothers 7.50 

J. E. Mitchell 7.50 

The above amounts shall be paid in advance on the first of each month 
to the proprietor of said building. 

The proprietor of the said building is hereby authorized to see that the 
said station is properly operated and maintained even to keeping the street 
space in front thereof clear for the convenient ingress and egress of pass- 
engers between the station and the buses, and all buses shall have right-of- 
way at parking at the curb in the order of their departure, but no bus shall 
be permitted to park for passengers earlier than ten minutes before it is 
due to depart on a schedule. 

A copy of this order is hereby ordered sent to the Mayor of the town 
of Kinston and ask that it be adopted by his board and copy put in the 
hands of his Chief of Police to enforce. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

This 29th day of April, 1930. . Clerk.

than forty-eight (48) hours after date of such notice. 

17. Consumer must notify the Company immediately upon discovery 
of gas leak; no light or flame must be taken near any escaping gas; the 
Company gives precedence to repair of leaks, but no deduction will be 
made from bills rendered for gas registered by meter.

SAMUEL GOODMAN AND C. A. BLACKWELDER v. COLD WATER 
LIGHT & POWER COMPANY, CONCORD, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

This cause arises out of an informal application of the petitioners for 
an order of the Commission, requiring the respondent to provide adequate 
electric service to the petitioners for residential lighting and power use. 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 55 

The evidence discloses that a line of No. 8 wire is constructed from the 
respondent's main line to the homes of the petitioners, but is connected 
to another line betwen the main line of the respondent and the petitioners' 
homes, through which connection service is furnished to the petitioners. 
A transformer of the capacity of three kw. is connected to the respondent's 
main line and through this transformer nine subscribers, including the 
petitioners, secure electric current. This transformer is not sufficient 
for the needs of the subscribers including the petitioners. The line directly 
from the respondent's main line to the homes of the petitioners was con- 
structed by the petitioners and the respondent contends that the peti- 
tioners must furnish, according to their rules, a transformer of sufficient 
size to give the current desired. 

The respondent further contends that the No. 8 wire is not sufficient in 
size to carry safely the current desired by the petitioners, but it appears 
from the evidence that wire of the same size is used by the respondent for 
other service lines and that the size is the minimum requirement of the 
National Electric Code. 

The respondent further contends that by established rules of the com- 
pany subscribers of the company must furnish transformers of sufficient 
size to meet their requirements for power when current for power is de- 
sired and introduced a resolution which it is claimed was passed in order 
to cover such policy. It is admitted, however, by the respondent that trans- 
formers of sufficient size are installed by the company and owned by it in 
other cases to meet the present and prospective requirements for current 
whether for lighting purposes or for power purposes, and that this has 
been the policy of the company both prior and subsequent to the passage 
of the resolution introduced in this case, purporting to establish a fixed 
rule as to the furnishing of transformers when current for power is re- 
quired by a subscriber. 

There are no rates or rules filed with the Commission by the respondent; 
and, under the law, this is necessary before rates and rules can be enforced 
legally by a public service company in the State of North Carolina; there- 
fore, the purported rule of the company is not effective in this case and 
the Commission must rely upon the general custom of the respondent with 
respect to its' subscribers other than the petitioners. Relying upon such 
custom, the Commission finds that unless the respondent company furnish 
a transformer of sufficient size to meet the requirements of the petitioners, 
it is discriminating as between its customers. 

In addition to the fact that the company is not able to enforce rules 
until the same have been approved by the Commission, it is true that 
discrimination is specifically prohibited by statute in this State and the 
respondent company cannot continue this discrimination and, therefore, 
cannot decline further to furnish the service applied for. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Cold Water Light & Power Company cease and desist 
from its discrimination against the petitioners in favor of other customers 
using its current, and it is hereby directed to install within thirty days 
from date of this order a transformer of sufficient size to furnish to the 
petitioners the current required for their purposes.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE DURHAM PUBLIC SERVICE COMPANY 
FOR ADJUSTMENT OF ELECTRIC LIGHTING AND POWER 
RATES. 

Order 

The petitioner in this case comes to the Commission with an agreement 
with the City of Durham, which is evidenced by copy of resolution by the 
City Council, signed by the City Clerk, with reference to certain changes 
in the set-up of its electric lighting and power rates. 

For some time in the past electric utilities have been effecting changes 
in the construction of rate schedules with a general tendency toward 
reduction in rates for electric service. This has been brought about by 
the extensive use to which customers are now putting electric service in 
addition to lighting only; therefore, convenience has necessitated making 
a rate which will permit the use of electric current for cooking, refrigera- 
tion, and other small domestic appliances. The rates presented by the 
petitioner in this case, which are fully agreed to by the City of Durham 
with reference to rates to be charged within the corporate limits of said 
city, have been made with a view to making possible a wider use of 
electricity. 

The rates presented with this petition appear to be a great improvement 
over former rates in effect in this locality; however, the rates presented 
for large power and lighting service appear to be virtually those now in 
effect. The rural rate carries the same energy charge as that within the 
city, which has the approval of the city, with a slight increase in the 
minimum charge. Therefore, it is 

Ordered, That petitioner be, and is hereby authorized to charge the 
rates set forth in Schedule "D", "C" and "H", attached hereto and made a 
part hereof, effective on meter readings on and after February 1, 1930; 
and it is 

Further Ordered, That Rural Schedule "R" and Schedules "P" and 
"P-A" for large power and light service, attached hereto and made a part 
hereof, be, and they are hereby approved, effective on meter readings on 
and after February 1, 1930. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 22nd day of January, 1930. Clerk.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE ALMOND LIGHT AND POWER COM- 
PANY FOR PERMISSION TO ABANDON CERTAIN DISTRIBU- 
TION LINES. 

Order 

This matter came came up upon the application of the petitioner for 
permission to abandon certain electric distribution lines near the Town of 
Albemarle, North Carolina. 

It appears that under the former management of this company certain 
extensions were made to the cost of which certain contributions were made 
by the prospective subscribers. Since the present management has ob- 
tained control, a controversy has arisen with reference to these contribu- 
tions, the subscribers claiming a verbal agreement and the original owners 
disputing the claim. The company has an affidavit from one of the origi- 
nal subscribers confirming the stand taken by the company. 

A majority of the subscribers having refused to pay their current elec- 
tric bills, the company has disconnected service for non-payment and the 
subscribers have reconnected despite warnings to the contrary. The 
company therefore, desires to sacrifice such revenue as it may now be 
getting from the lines in order to avoid any litigation with the claimants; 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Almond Light & Power Company be, and it is hereby 
authorized to discontinue this section of its distribution system at the 
point where it connects with the Moss Springs Line, subject to hearing upon 
complaint. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

This fourth day of February, 1930. Clerk.

Order 

This petition is filed by the petitioner because of the inauguration of

open wire on the principal streets in the Town of Clayton, and the in- 
stallation of automatic exchange equipment. 

In anticipation of this service, the officials of the Town of Clayton

the rates asked are not in excess of rates for exchanges of similar size 
with this class of equipment, it is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the Carolina Telephone and Telegraph Company is hereby 
authorized to charge the following monthly rental rates on its Clayton 
Exchange, effective when the installation of the class of equipment named 
above has been completed and is in use:

Private Branch Exchange Service 
A. General 

1. The rates quoted herein contemplate the use of standard equipment. 
When equipment of a special type is desired, the determination of the 
charges to apply will be based upon the individual requirements of the 
applicant. 

2. All operating at the subscriber's premises is performed at the ex- 
pense of the subscriber and the subscriber is required to conform with the 
rules and regulations the Telephone Company may adopt as necessary in 
order to maintain a proper standard service. 

3. There are five different types of private branch exchange systems: 

Class A Systems — Cordless Switchboard Systems. 
Class B Systems — Cord Non-Multiple Switchboard Systems 
Class C Systems — Cord Multiple Switchboard Systems. 
Class D Systems — Key Switching Equipment Systems. 
Class E Systems — Dial Equipment Systems 

4. For charges for miscellaneous equipment furnished in connection 
with private branch exchange systems, see "Miscellaneous Equipment." 

5. For the application of mileage charges in connection with trunk lines 
and stations, see "Mileage Charges." 

6. In connection with Class A, B and D Systems the charges given 
below for battery power and ringing circuit apply only when such systems 
are located inside the base rate area. Battery power for Class A, B and 
D Systems installed outside the base rate area, is furnished only by special 
agreement. For ringing circuit for systems installed outside the base 
rate area, regular exchange line mileage charges apply in addition to the 
monthly charge given below.

1. The following schedules will apply for either business or residence 
subscriber's service. 

2. Private branch exchange systems of the Class C and Class E types 
are systems requiring special apparatus to meet the special requirements 
of the applicant. These apparatus requirements vary materially as to 
individual applicants and it is not practicable to establish rates to meet 
these varying requirements. For such systems, therefore, rates covering 
switchboards, power plants and associated apparatus will be quoted only 
when the apparatus requirements in individual cases have been determined. 
The regulations and rates specified herein for Class B systems also apply 
to stations, ringing circuits and trunk lines of Class C and Class E sys- 
tems, and also to local messages sent from such systems. 

3. In connection with Class D systems, applicants will be required to 
bear the cost of cabling in excess of 30 feet for any station, including

(a) Each trunk line which is to be connected through to a private 
branch exchange station at night, on Sundays, and holidays is bridge 
to a central office multiple jack bearing a different (non-consecutive) 
number. The regular number in the underlined series may then be 
used for day service, and the special (non-consecutive) number for 
night service. Calls made at night for the special number are com- 
pleted only over the trunk line to which it is bridged, no connection 
being made with any other trunk line in case the called number is 
busy or does not answer.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE CENTRAL CAROLINA TELEPHONE 
COMPANY FOR ESTABLISHMENT OF RATES ON ITS PINE- 
HURST EXCHANGE. 

Order 

The petitioner in this case has purchased the telephone exchange at 
Pinehurst, N. C, which was formerly owned by Pinehurst, Incorporated, 
and reconstructed the plant to such an extent that it is expected to take 
care of the exchange for some years to come. 

Pinehurst is largely a winter resort, therefore, it demands first-class 
telephone service. Those interested in the future of Pinehurst think that 
in order to give this service its plant should be improved. This has been 
done by the purchaser and in its sale certain rates have been agreed to, 
and for that reason the rates are being authorized without investigation, 
subject to hearing upon complaint, until it is demonstrated what the rates 
will do with respect to raising adequate revenue for the maintenance of 
the class of service demanded; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petition be granted and the Central Carolina Tele- 
phone Company be authorized to charge the rates attached hereto, effec- 
tive January 1, 1930, subject to hearing upon complaint. 

By order of the Commission : R. 0. Self,

Docket No. 6844. 

IN RE: PETITION OF THE CENTRAL CAROLINA TELEPHONE 
COMPANY FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF TELEPHONE RATES 
ON ITS EXCHANGES AT ANGIER, CARTHAGE, OAK RIDGE, 
STOKESDALE, SUMMERFIELD AND VASS. 

Order 

This petition was presented to the Commission for the establishment of 
rates for telephone service for the towns of Angier, Carthage, Oak Ridge, 
Stokesdale, Summerfield and Vass. Telephone service at some of these 
points has been heretofore largely rural, some of them having had no tele- 
phone service in the past except probably a rural, or farmers' line, from 
some other exchange. 

In practically all instances prior arrangements have been made with 
citizens' committees of the several communities with respect to the rates. 
The rates do not appear to be in excess of necessary charges in order to 
give the service outlined. Our experience with small telephone exchanges 
has been that telephone utilities operating very small exchanges have two 
things to guide them, which probably have more to do with regulating the 
rates than any other factors: First, there is a certain overhead expense 
to each exchange which must be met; and, second, if the rates are too high, 
subscribers will not take the service and the utility will, in turn, suffer. 
The rates requested in this petition appear to be reasonable; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the rates attached (consisting of six sheets, one sheet for 
each exchange named) be, and they are hereby promulgated to be effective 
when the rebuilt property or the new property, as the case may be, has 
been put into service. The petitioner will notify the Commission in each 
case when the rates become effective. It is 

Further Ordered, That at the time the rates prescribed herein become 
effective on the Oak Ridge Exchange, unlimited free service between that 



Decisions and Adjustments op Complaints 79 

exchange and exchanges at Summerfield, Greensboro, Kernersville and 
Stokesdale shall be discontinued; that at the time the rates prescribed 
herein become effective on the Stokesdale Exchange, unlimited free service 
between that exchange and exchanges at Summerfield, Oak Ridge and 
Greensboro shall be discontinued; that at the time the rates prescribed 
herein become effective on the Summerfield Exchange, unlimited free service 
between that exchange and exchanges at Greensboro, Oak Ridge and Stokes- 
dale shall be discontinued; and that at the time the rates prescribed herein 
become effective on the Vass Exchange, unlimited free service between Vass 
and Southern Pines shall be discontinued.

COMPANY FOR ADJUSTMENT OF RATES AT SOUTHERN PINES 
AND VICINITY. 

Order 

The Central Carolina Telephone Company recently purchased and rebuilt 
the telephone exchange in Southern Pines, North Carolina, at considerable 
expense. Southern Pines is a winter resort, patronized by a class of 
tourists who desire the best telephone service. Prior to the acquisition 
of this property by the present owner, long distance service was entirely 
inadequate. Since the exchange has been modernized the company is now 
in position to meet the requirements. Probably a greater expenditure was 
required in rebuilding this exchange than would ordinarily have been 
required of a property of similar size operated principally for local service. 
The exchange property at Southern Pines is not compact but is scattered 
over a large territory which probably requires the investment per station 
to be greater than on any other telephone exchange property of similar 
size in the State. 

Representatives of the petitioner had this matter up with the citizens 
of Southern Pines for several months prior to making application to this 
Commission and an agreement was made with a citizens' committee ap- 
pointed from the several civic associations of the community with reference 
to rates. The Commission does not feel disposed to interfere with this 
agreement pending actual experience with the rate; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the rates attached (consisting of two sheets) be, and 
they are hereby promulgated effective January 1, 1930.

FREMONT TELEPHONE COMPANY, PETITIONER, v. CAROLINA 
TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY, RESPONDENT. 

Order 

Petition in this case was filed on the 30th day of March, 1929, and evi- 
dence was heard on the 20th day of March, 1929. Briefs have been filed 
by both parties, setting forth fully their contentions on the record. The 
petitioner is a telephone company operating telephone exchanges at Fre- 
month and Pikesville, in Wayne County; Stantonsburg, in Wilson County, 
the latter being connected with the office in Fremont; and Princeton, in 
Johnston County. The Princeton exchange is not connected with the other 
properties of the petitioner, but the combined system serves about 450 
subscribers in municipal and country districts with about 250 miles of 
rural circuit lines. The petitioner also has two toll circuits from Pikeville 
into Fremont, one from Fremont into Stantonsburg, and one from Stantons- 
burg into Wilson. At Fremont, connection is made with the respondent, 
giving one toll circuit into Wilson and one into Goldsboro. The respondent 
accepts calls at Fremont for Wilson and beyond or Goldsboro and beyond 
over its lines when the calls originate on the Fremont exchange, and at 
Wilson from Stantonsburg when the calls originate on that exchange. 

The petitioner seeks authority to construct a line from its exchange at 
Fremont to Wilson along the highway between those two points and at 
Wilson, an order for a connection with the respondent for the purpose 
of transmitting over the line thus constructed its toll messages for Wilson 
and beyond. It bases its contention upon two major allegations: First, 



86 N. C. Corporation Commission 

that the line thus constructed will furnish a local and rural service to 
those along the proposed line who do not now enjoy telephone service of 
any kind, and, second; that the toll lines now in operation between Fre- 
mont and Wilson and between Fremont and Goldsboro are not adequate 
to meet the demands of the public using the Fremont exchange. 

It is also contended by the petitioner that it must have a substantial 
toll business if it is to prosper as a telephone company, but this can not 
be considered in favor of the request of the petitioner that it be granted 
authority to construct its line from Fremont to Wilson and secure a con- 
nection at Wilson with the respondent. 

The respondent, answering the contentions of the petitioner, says that 
the present toll lines connected into the Fremont office furnish adequate 
facilities for the handling of existing business and any which may be 
expected to come from new rural service extended to the surrounding 
territory. It further contends that it has had for sometime a circuit 
through the town of Fremont which the petitioner has refused to permit 
it to connect to the Fremont switchboard; that said circuit is now available 
and will be connected whenever the petitioner will grant permission to 
make the connection; and that the circuit already connected, together 
with the one which the respondent wishes to connect, will furnish all 
the toll service required by the public using the lines of the petitioner 
company at Fremont. 

The respondent contends that the rural service proposed by the petitioner 
can be furnished by it without duplication of existing toll lines between 
Fremont and Wilson and without the connection afr Wilson. It does not 
propose to furnish the local service nor does it propose to prevent the 
petitioner from furnishing it. The respondent stands ready and willing, 
however, to make the additional connection of the toll line at Fremont 
and furnish over it and the existing facilities all the service required by 
teh petitioner for its subscribers. 

On September 29, 1927, the Fremont Telephone Company filed a petition, 
asking for authority to construct a toll circuit from Fremont to Goldsboro 
and another from Fremont to Wilson, the latter to be along the same high- 
way as now proposed by the petitioner for the toll line for which authority 
to construct is now sought. On October 6, 1927, the Clerk informed the 
petitioner that: 'The Commission, having under consideration the above 
subject, hereby grants authority to construct such a line with a standard 
material specified in the petition." The petition was proper and the Com- 
mission, in dealing with the subject, had authority to grant the permission 
requested. 

Following the letter from the Clerk of the Commission, the petitioner 
set about the purchase of the required material for the construction of 
the proposed line from Fremont to Wilson as well as the line from Fremont 
to Goldsboro and completed its purchase of the estimated amount. The 
respondent declined to connect with the petitioner at Wilson and to meet 
the petitioner on its proposed line to Wilson. Failing to get a connection 
with the respondent at Wilson, the Fremont Telephone Company filed its 
petition of March 30, 1928, in which it again asked authority to construct 
the line to Wilson and petitioned the Commission to require the respondent 
to give a connection at Wilson. It was not until this petition was filed 
that the respondent met the request of the petitioner repeatedly made 



Decisions and Adjustments op Complaints 87 

from 1918 that toll lines or circuits sufficient to meet its demands be 
connected to the Fremont switchboard. This was done by the respondent 
in August or September of 1928 by the completion of an additional circuit 
between Wilson and Goldsboro, through Fremont, and filing with the 
petitioner a request to be permitted to make connection with its switch- 
board . The filing of the petition of September 29, 1927, by the Fremont 
Telephone Company and the action of the Commission thereon does not 
justify, nor is it held to justify, the granting of the petition of that 
company in this case for effecting physical connection with the respondent 
at Wilson so as to handle toll messages over the lines of the petitioner 
to Wilson. The evidence must be sufficient to show that the public con- 
venience and requirements are such as to justify the order of the Com- 
mission and it is solely upon the facts existing at the time the petition 
of March 30, 1928, was filed that the Commission must decide the issues 
raised as between the petitioner and respondent. 

The evidence shows that the total business out of Fremont has increased 
gradually and substantially since 1924, the approximate date upon which 
the respondent discontinued one of the toll circuits into Fremont. In 1924, 
the total business out of Fremont was $2,567.44, which had increased to 
$3,953.84 in 1928. This record of increase of business, together with the 
action of the respondent in tendering to the petitioner an additional toll 
line at this time, constitutes facts sufficient to warrant a finding that the 
public at Fremont requires the additional toll service which the petitioner 
seeks authority to construct, and the Commission so concludes. 

The conclusion that the additional service is required for properly 
serving the public raises the question as to whether the petitioner shall 
construct the toll line or the respondent shall be permitted to furnish it. 
Upon this point the parties, of course, cannot agree. It, however, becomes 
necessary to analyze the situation to determine the rights as between the 
two contending companies. 

The petitioner holds authority to construct the line from Fremont to 
Wilson, granted in October, 1927. The respondent has constructed, since 
that date, the toll line from Wilson to Goldsboro and has requested per- 
mission of the petitioner to connect with the switchboard at Fremont. 
The permission has not been granted by the petitioner because, as a result 
of the authority granted in October, 1927, it has purchased the necessary 
material to construct the line and rests upon its rights to be permitted 
to construct and furnish the facility under that authority. The line 
from Wilson to Goldsboro is in use and is needed for the other toll business 
of the respondent although the toll business out of Fremont could be 
handled over it. Upon these facts, however, it seems proper to stand 
"by the order heretofore entered by this Commission and give to the 
petitioner the right to construct and furnish the service from Fremont 
to Wilson. 

The connection with the respondent at Wilson is the next question which 
presents itself for determination by the Commission; but, as this involves 
a question of law, it will be dealt with after the question of the necessity 
for local service has been disposed of. 

Upon the question of supplying local service to the section between 
Fremont and Wilson, there can be but little debate, as the respondent 
does not propose to supply this service but depends upon the petitioner 



88 N. C. Corporation Commission 

to furnish it if the people along" the proposed line enjoy phone service. 
The petitioner proposes to furnish the service, and in fact, proposes to 
construct the line for the two-fold purpose, i. e., furnishing a toll line 
from Fremont to Wilson and a local circuit between these two points. It 
is not contended that the local service is not demanded. In fact, evidence 
that twenty-one country residents had applied for such service was pre- 
sented. The debate is not, therefore, on this question, and to conclude 
that the respondent will not meet this public demand is in accord with 
the evidence and the position of all the parties. One of the Commissioners 
at the hearing asked respondent if it could give assurance that it would 
supply the demand for rural service and respondent would not answer. 
The Fremont Telephone Company is, therefore, entitled to be sustained 
upon this request, not only because it already has authority to construct 
the line, but because it is the only party which proposes to supply the 
service. 

Having thus concluded that additional toll service is needed between 
Fremont and Wilson; that the petitioner possesses authority from the 
Corporation Commission to construct a line which will supply such service, 
that it is now entitled to permission to construct the proposed line; that 
the respondent has need for its. toll line now running through Fremont 
but not connected into the Fremont switchboard; that the respondent does 
not propose to supply the local service required between Fremont and 
Wilson, demand for which exists; it remains for the Commission to de- 
termine whether or not it has authority to require of the respondent 
the necessary connection at Wilson. Without this connection the con- 
struction of the line from Fremont to Wilson is a useless expenditure. 
Having found the public demand for the construction to Wilson, it follows, 
as night the day, that connection at Wilson with the respondent is in the 
public interest. 

As to the law sustaining the authority of the Commission to require 
the connection, there can be but little question. It is well settled that a 
regulatory body, such as the Corporation Commission, has the right and 
duty to require such a connection when necessary to meet the needs 
and conveniece of the public upon proper compensation. Thus it follows 
that since the needs and convenience of the public are resolved in favor 
of the construction of the line and in support of the petitioner's con- 
tention for the right to construct and supply the facility, the Commission 
should go the further step and, in the interest of the public service, require 
the physical connection between the petitioner and the respondent. 

The telephone company, acting under a quasi-public franchise, is properly 
classified among the public service corporations, and as such is subject 
to public regulation and reasonable control. (Clinton-Dunn Tel. Co. v. 
Carolina Tel., etc. Co., 159 N. C. 9, Godwin v. Carolina Tel. Co. 136 N. C. 
258, Telegraph Co. v. Telegraph Co. 61 Vermont 241, Telephone Co. v. 
Telegraph Co. 66 Md. 399, Cumberland Tel. etc. Co. v. Kelly 160 Fed 316). 

Telephone companies, being subject to regulation by the Corporation 
Commission, are subject to the requirements of the Commission under 
Section 1038, C. C, authorizing the Commission 'to require all transpor- 
tation and transmission companies to establish and maintain all such 
public service facilities and conveniences as may be reasonable and just." 
By inference the same authority is authorized by Section 1037, C. S., and 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 89 

the two together justify the exercise by the Commission of its power of 
regulation by compelling physical connection with the respondent at the 
Wilson exchange. 

Although at common law one telephone company could not force physical 
connection with another telephone company, yet under constitutional and 
statutory authority, one telephone company may be required to give to 
other companies the privilege of physical connection with its lines. To 
make this connection of value, it will be required to give other companies 
the use of its lines, and to make this service practical, its operators will 
be required to perform the necessary service "of plugging in, answering 
and getting physical connection. (Billings Mutual Telephone Co. v. Rocky 
Mountain Bell Telephone Co. 155 Federal 207.) 

The giving of physical connection with another company is not satisfied 
by mere physical union of the telephone wires and mere adjustment, but 
the right of connection and use means the privilege of having the business 
proffered, accepted and efficiently cared for by the receiving company 
through its agents or operators substantially as would be the business 
proffered by one of its own subscribers. (Southwestern Telephone and 
Telegraph Co. v. State 109 Tex, 337, 150 S. W. 604.) 

With one exception, the courts of this country seem to be in harmony 
in support of the positions above stated, that the State, as an incident 
to the exercise of its police power, may require physical connection between 
telephone companies in the interest of the public service to be rendered 
by a telephone company. Exhaustive discussions in support of this position 
may be found in 11 A. L. R. 1204, 16 A. L. R. 352 and 43 L. R. A. New 
Series 550. The statute in this State being sufficiently inclusive, therefore, 
justifies this Commission in holding that the respondent must grant physi- 
cal connection to the petitioner at its exchange in Wilson to the end that 
such facilities and conveniences as required by the public may be supplied. 

This record discloses no evidence as to the cost of making the physical 
connection between the petitioner and the respondent at the Wilson ex- 
change, nor as to the just and proper terms upon which such connection 
should be maintained. It has been held that the matter of regulation, 
the terms and conditions of a physical connection of the lines of different 
telephone companies, may be reserved by the Commission for further hear- 
ing and orders may be made from time to time adjusting the rights of 
the companies as future developments may require, (Farmers' Mutual 
Telephone Co. v. Central U. Telephone Co. P. U. R. 1915 E. 13) and that 
in ordering a physical connection to be made between a long distance com- 
pany and a local exchange company, it is the duty of the companies to 
undertake to agree as to the terms for the connection and the maintenance 
of the connection. Therefore, in the absence of evidence on these two 
questions, this case should be retained upon the docket of the Commission 
for further hearing if the petitioner and respondent companies cannot 
agree upon terms for the division of the cost of making a physical con- 
nection at Wilson and the terms for the maintenance of the connection 
when made. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the respondent, Carolina Telephone and Telegraph Com- 
pany be, and it is hereby required to grant and effect a physical connection 
between its switchboard at Wilson, North Carolina, and the line of the 
petitioner, Fremont Telephone Company, when the line of the latter shall 



90 N. G. Corporation Commission 

have been completed up to the point where physical connection with said 
switchboard at Wilson is possible; and the said respondent and petitioner 
are hereby directed to submit to this Commission within sixty days from 
the date of this order terms upon which the expense of said connection 
shall be divided and upon which the same shall be maintained. It is 

Further Ordered, That the authority heretofore granted to the Fremont 
Telephone Company to construct a circuit from Fremont to Wilson be, and 
it is hereby affirmed. It is 

Further Ordered, That if the petitioner and respondent cannot agree 
upon either the division of -the expenses for making physical connection as 
hereinbefore directed and/or cannot agree upon the terms under which 
the same shall be maintained and used, then, and in that event, this 
case is assigned for hearing upon further notice by the Commission. 

By order of the Commission: R. 0. Self, 

This 15th day of November, 1929. Clerk. 

LEE, Chairman, dissenting: It being admitted by the Fremont Tele- 
phone Company that the purpose for which it is asking this connection is 
to take a business from the Carolina Telephone and Telegraph Company 
that it now has and is in position to give to the public, I dissent from the 
order in this case. It is admitted, also, that the Carolina Telephone and 
Telegraph Company has adequate circuits into Fremont, which, if it were 
allowed to connect with the exchange at Fremont, would be ample. To 
require the connection asked in this petition would, in my opinion, confuse 
rather than help public service; therefore, I cannot agree with the decision 
reached by the other members of the Commission.

TELEPHONE AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY, RESPONDENT. 

Order 
Petition was filed in this case March 13th, 1928; evidence heard March 
20th, 1929; order entered November 15th, 1929, granting the petition; 



Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints 91 

exceptions to order filed by respondent on January 2nd, 1930, and hearing 
had on said exceptions February 18, 1930, at which hearing the entire 
case was reviewed by the Commission and all the matters in controversy 
and the contentions of both petitioner and respondent were again pre- 
sented by, counsel both orally and by briefs. 

It will be recalled that the petitioner in this case seeks to have the 
Commission authorize it to construct a telephone line along the highway 
connection of the telephone system of petitioner with that of the respondent 
from Fremont to Wilson and order the respondent to allow a physical 
at Wilson in order that the petitioner may route its toll messages to Wilson 
and beyond over its own toll line, which it asks authority to construct 
to Wilson. 

The petitioner contends that the toll line now in operation between 
Fremont and Wilson and other points is not adequate to meet the needs 
of the public using the Fremont exchange. 

The respondent denies that the toll facilities are inadequate and further 
contends that it has had for some time an additional circuit through the 
town of Fremont which the petitioner has refused to permit respondent 
to connect to the Fremont switchboard, and further contends that when 
said additional circuit is connected there will be a surplus of service. 

From all the evidence adduced at the hearings and the admissions of 
counsel and after a very careful and full consideration of the testimony, 
the arguments of counsel and the briefs filed by both sides, the Com- 
mission finds the following facts: 

That there is now a 'valid contract subsisting between petitioner and 
respondent, entered into at the request of the petitioner, wherein the 
petitioner has agreed to ues the toll line of the respondent from Fremont 
to Wilson upon terms set out in said contract; that the respondent has 
performed and is performing its part under said contract; that the re- 
spondent has one toll line now in use and has completed another circuit 
which it stands ready to connect with the switchboard of the petitioner 
at Fremont whenever the petitioner will permit it to do so, which, when 
connected, will afford adequate and ample long distance telephone facili- 
ties for the town of Fremont for some time to come. The Commission 
further finds that if the petitioner were allowed to construct the proposed 
line there would then be a duplication of service between Fremont and 
Wilson which the Commission finds is not needed and which would in 
effect tend to render nugatory the contract aforesaid. 

Several questions of law are raised by the exceptions but the Com- 
mission deems it unnecessary and does not pass on said questions of law 
for the reason that it is of the opinion that the present service between 
Fremont and Wilson is adequate for the public needs and that the Com- 
mission certainly would not be justified in impairing the obligation of a 
contract when public necessity does not demand it. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the order heretofore made in this case be, and the same 
is hereby revoked; that the exceptions relevant to the above findings are 
allowed, and that the petition be dismissed.

92 N. C. Corporation Commission 

IN RE: PETITION OF GRANITE TELEPHONE COMPANY FOR 
ADJUSTMENT OF ITS TELEPHONE RATES ON ITS EXCHANGE 
AT GRANITE FALLS, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 
Petition having been made to the Commission for an increase in tele- 
phone rates on the Granite Falls Exchange of the Granite Telephone Com- 
pany and copy of petition having been served upon the Mayor of said 
town, with request that he answer same within ten days from the date 
of notice thereof, and no answer having been received, it is thought that 
the rates of the petitioner demand a hearing on the matter without further 
delay. 

It appears from the record that there are on this exchange about 240 
telephones, 71 of which are owned by rural patrons. The company itself 
claims to have an investment of between thirteen and fourteen thousand 
dollars and proposes the following rates: 

Per Month 

Business Single Line $4.00 

Business Two-party Line 3.50 

Business Four-party Line 3.00 

Business Extension Phone , 1.25 

Residence One-party Line. 2.50 

Residence Two-party Line 2.00 

Residence Four-party Line 1.75 

Residence Extension Phone 1.00 

Four-party Rural Magneto 1.00 

Installation Charge, All Classes .* 3.50 

The Commission, after considering the matter in the light of the service 
to be derived from the use of a telephone connection with this exchange, 
is of the opinion that the rates requested are too high and are too much 
out of line with rates for exchanges of similar size which it has authorized 
in the past; therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the Granite Telephone Company be, and is hereby author- 
ized to charge the following monthly rates: 

Per Month 

Business Single Line $3.50 

Business Two-party Line 2.75 

Business Four-party Line 2.25 

Business Extension Phone 1.00 

Residence Single Line 2.50 

Residence Two-party Line 2.00 

Residence Four-party Line 1.75 

Residence Extension Phone 1.00 

Four-party Rural Magneto 1.00 

Installation Charge, All Classes 2.00 

Inside Building Move 1.50 

The above rates are to apply within one mile air line measurement of 
the exchange; beyond one mile, exclusive of rural lines, the rates shall be 
the rates shown above plus 25 cents per month per telephone. The rates 
prescribed in this order are to become effective on the first of the month 
following the date of completion of new construction.

APPLICATION OF THE NORFOLK AND CAROLINA TELEPHONE 
AND TELEGRAPH COMPANY FOR TELEPHONE RATES ON ITS 
MANTEO, N. C, EXCHANGE. 

Order 

The petitioner now informs this Commission that it has constructed an 
exchange in the town of Manteo, N. C, on Roanoke Island, and that said 
exchange is ready for service, and the petitioner is asking for the estab- 
lishment of rates thereon. 

The petitioner further states that it would like to add a penalty of $0.25 
for each main phone to all subscribers' accounts not paid on or before the 
fifth day of each month, but it has been the practice of this Commission 
for the many years it has been constituted not to permit utilities to collect 
penalties. If there is an exchange in this State that is legally authorized 
to collect penalties it is not revealed by reference to our files; therefore,

IN RE: NORTH STATE TELEPHONE COMPANY PETITIONING 
ADJUSTMENT OF TELEPHONE RATES IN THE TOWN OF RAN- 
DLEMAN, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

The petitioner in this case makes application not to raise rates, but to 

establish some additional rates, which the company owning this exchange 

prior to the purchase by the North State Telephone Company, did not 

have. It appears that for some years the rates of the former company 

were : 

• 

Per Month 

Straight Line, Business $2.75 

Single Line, Residence 1.75 

Party Line, Residence 1.25 

Rural Line 75 

The present company does not have rural lines on this exchange but it 
appears that the lines have been turned over to the subscribers, using 
them, to keep up and the present company charges each line for a drop 
on the switchboard, which is based on the number of phones on any given 
rural line and in many cases is often less than $0.75. This petitioner 
desires to establish a business party line and also a base rate area outside 



94 N. C. Corporation Commission 

of which the company will charge the rate inside this area plus $0.25, 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the petitioner be, and is hereby authorized to charge the 
following rates within one mile of the Randleman, N. C, exchange office, 
and for telephones beyond the one-mile area it is hereby authorized to 
charge $0.25 per month additional to the rates herein named: 

Per Month 

Business Special Line $2.75 

Business Party Line -2.00 

Residence Special Line 1.75 

Residence Party Line 1.25 

In addition to the above rates the petitioner is hereby authorized to 
charge the sum of $1.00 for each cut-out and reconnect on party lines. 
This last charge is permitted by the Commission for the reason that in 
order to disconnect or reconnect any given subscriber on a party line, it 
necessitates sending an employee to the subscriber's house.

Decisions and Adjustments of Complaints L01 

IN RE: PETITION OF THE SOUTHERN BELL TELEPHONE AND 
TELEGRAPH COMPANY FOR REVISION IN EXCHANGE RATES 
AND BASE RATE AREA AT ITS CHARLOTTE, NORTH CARO- 
LINA EXCHANGE. 

Order 

The petitioner herein makes application to -enlarge the base rate area 
within which telephone service from its Charlotte exchange will be fur- 
nished at primary exchange rates without mileage charges and to revise 
its monthly rates for its exchange telephone service to be rendered from 
its exchange within the enlarged base rate area in accordance with the 
schedule of tariffs attached hereto and marked Exhibit A, and map of 
proposed enlarged base rate area is attached hereto and marked Exhibit B. 
Both of said exhibits are made a part of this order. 

The petition was presented to the Commission after having been ex- 
plained to the Mayor and Commissioners of Charlotte, as evidenced by 
letter dated April 5, 1929, signed by Mayor F. M. Redd, Commissioner of 
Public Works R. L. Brown and Commissioner of Public Safety W. R. 
Robertson. The petition was explained, also, at a joint meeting held at 
the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce of members from the Board of Di- 
rectors of the Chamber of Commerce, the Charlotte Industrial Bureau, 
Charlotte Merchants' Association, Charlotte Shippers' and Manufacturers' 
Association, which meeting was presided over by Mr. C. A. Williams, Sr., 
President of the Chamber of Commerce, as evidenced by a letter dated 
April 4, 1929, signed by C. 0. Kuester, Vice-President and General Mana- 
ger of the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce, with a copy of the minutes 
of the meeting attached thereto. 

Evidence is presented which indicates that there are about 3,200 tele- 
phones outside the present base rate area on which the proposed rates will 
decrease the monthly exchange rental rate about eighty-two cents per 
telephone, and the increase proposed on business telephones within the 
present base rate area will average about 39.5 cents per telephone. There- 
fore, it is 

Ordered, That the petitioner be, and is hereby authorized to charge the 
rates set forth in Exhibit A within the base rate area set forth in Exhibit 
B, effective on and after April 26, 1929. It is 

Further Ordered, That nothing in this order shall be construed to 
prejudice the rights of any individual who may desire to be heard with 
reference thereto.

IN RE: TELEPHONE EXCHANGE RATES, FOR SALISBURY, 

NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

On July 10, 1927, the Southern Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company 
made application to the Corporation Commission for permission to revise 
its rates charged for its Salisbury exchange service. At that time it was 
making preparations to build a new exchange building, install new central 
office equipment, and place a large part of the wires in the business section 
of the town under ground. It was estimated at that time that this im- 
provement would cost approximately two hundred fifty thousand dollars. 
Hearing was held and the City of Salisbury was represented by counsel. 
Since that time the construction has been made and instead of costing 
what the company originally estimated, it has exceeded that amount by 
probably as much as fifty thousand dollars. 

The number of telephones now on the Salisbury exchange is approxi- 
mately what some of the other cities in the State were at the time rates 
were granted for them that are now asked for Salisbury. The exchange 
has been rebuilt and completed and is expected to be in use by February 
23rd, 1929; therefore, it is

During the early part of 1928 the above-named petitioner filed an applica- 
tion for the establishment of rules, regulations, and rates in the towns of 
Bryson City, Franklin and Sylva. The petitioner is already operating in 
these towns and the rates asked for the town of Sylva are now in force. 
The rates which are asked for the towns of Franklin and Bryson City 
have been specifically approved by the board of aldermen of each town. 

At the time the rates of this company were made they were made without 
rules and regulations, but since the company has been operating it has 
grown rapidly and now finds the necessity for rules governing these rates; 
therefore, it is 

Ordered, That the rates, rules and regulations attached to this order 
shall be effective from and after date hereof. 

By order of the Commission : R. O. Self, 

This 18th day of December, 1928. Clerk.

IN RE: PETITION OF THE WESTERN CAROLINA TELEPHONE 
COMPANY FOR APPROVAL OF EXCHANGE RATES AT HIGH- 
LANDS, NORTH CAROLINA. 

Order 

The Western Carolina Telephone Company, with principal office at 
Franklin, North Carolina, makes application fo rapproval of exchange 
rates at Highlands, North Carolina. 

Highlands is probably twenty miles from any other telephone exchange 
and the principal business done by the telephone company in that town is 
long distance business during the summer season, Highlands being a very 
popular, mountain, summer resort. Fort this reason the telephone com- 
pany has built very satisfactory toll lines to this point and it has a number 
of citizens who now would like to have telephone service. The petitioner 
took this matter up with the Mayor and Board of Aldermen of the town 
and it appears that they approved the rates requested in the application. 
However, the rates requested are somewhat in excess of rates for similar 
service which have been approved by the Commission for small exchanges; 
therefore, the Commission is approving the application in part but reduc- 
ing the rates requested on part of the service. It is, therefore, 

Ordered, That the petitioner be and is hereby authorized to charge

CAR DEMURRAGE RULES AND CHARGES 

APPLYING ON 

INTRASTATE TRAFFIC AT ALL POINTS IN NORTH CAROLINA 

APPLICATION 

The Car Demurrage Rules and Charges, published herein, apply on In- 
trastate traffic at all points on the railroads in North Carolina. 

Note. — The disposition at point of detention determines the purpose for which a 
car is held and the rule applicable thereto, except where there is specific provisions 
to the contrary. 

Rule 1 — Cars Subject to Rules 

Section A. — Cars of either railroad or private ownership, held for or by 
consignors or consignees for loading, unloading, forwarding directions or 
for anyother purpose (including cars held for loading company material 
unless the loading is done by the railroad for which the material is intended 
and on its tracks) are subject to these demurrage rules, except as provided 
in Section B. 

Section B. — The following cars are not subject to these demurrage rules: 

1. Cars under load with company material for use of and consigned to 
the railroad in whose possession the cars are held. 

2. Cars under load with livestock. This exemption does not include cars 
held for or by shippers for loading livestock. Live poultry will not be con- 
sidered as livestock. 

3. Empty cars placed for loading coal at coal mines, coal mine sidings, 
coal washers, or coke ovens located at or adjacent to the mines producing 
the coal used in making the coke, and such cars under load with coal, at 
such mines, mine siding or coal washers, or with coke at such coke ovens: 
Provided, however, that this exemption applies only at mines, coal washers 
and coke ovens, at which car distribution rules are applied in lieu of de- 
murrage rules. (See Note 1 to Rule 2, Section B, paragraph 1.) 

Note. — Coke ovens shall not be considered as adjacent to coal mines when the coal 
used in making the coke is moved from the mines to the coke ovens under freight 
tariff rates. 

4. (a) Private cars on private tracks when the ownership of the car 
and track is the same. 

Note. — Private cars while held under constructive placement for delivery upon the 
tracks of their owners are subject to demurrage charges after expiration of forty- 
eight hours 'time. (See Rules 5 and 9.) 

DEFINITIONS 

Private Car. — A Private Car is a car having other than railroad owner- 
ship. A lease of a car is equivalent to ownership. Private cars must have 
the full name of the owner or lessee painted or stenciled thereon or must 
be boarded with wooden, metal or card boards showing the full name of 
owner or lessee, and, if card boarded, the card board must also show initials 
an number of car and date of shipment. If name of lessee is painted, 
stenciled or boarded on car, then the car is exempt from demurrage for the 
lessee only. If name of lessee is not painted, stenciled or boarded on car, 
then the car is exempt from demurrage for the owner only. 

A Private Track is a track outside of carrier's right-of-way, yard and 
terminals, and of which the carrier does not own either the rails, ties, road- 
bed or right-of-way; or a track or a portion of a track which is devoted to 
the purpose of its user, either by lease or written agreement, in which case 
the lease or written agreement will be considered as equivalent to owner- 
ship. 

4. (b) Empty private cars stored on railroad or private tracks, includ- 
ing such cars sent by the owner to a shipper for loading, provided the cars 
have not been placed or tendered for loading on the orders of a shipper. 
(See Rule 6, Section D.)

130 N. C. Corporation Commission 

Rule 2 — Free Time Allowed 

Section A. — (1) — Forty-eight hours (two days) free time will be allowed 
for loading or unloading all commodities. (See Rule 2, Section B, Para- 
graph 4.) 

"LOADING" includes the furnishing of forwarding directions on out- 
bound cars. (See Rule 6, Section C.) 

"UNLOADING" includes: 

(a) Surrender of bill of lading on shipments billed "to order." 

(b) Payment of lawful freight charges when required prior to delivery 
of the car. 

(c) Furnishing of a "turn-over" order (an order for delivery to an- 
other party) after car has been placed for delivery and no additional move- 
ment of the car is made. 

2. When the same car is both unloaded and reloaded, each transaction 
will be treated as independent of the other; except that, when loading is 
begun before unloading is completed, the free time for loading shall not 
begin to run until the first 7 a. m. after unloading is completed. This will 
also apply to industries performing their own switching service, in which 
case the industry must notify the carrier date and time car was unloaded. 

3. When a car held for loading or unloading is moved by railroad or 
private power to another point in the same yard or industry to complete 
loading, or unloading, only forty-eight hours' free time will be allowed, 
except that when the railroad makes a charge for such movement the time 
incident thereto shall not be computed against the car. 

(See Rule 7, Note 2.) 

Note. — If a consignee wishes his car held at any break-up yard or a hold yard before 
notification and placement, such car will be subject to demurrage. That is to say, 
the time held in the break-up yard will be included within the 48 hours of free time. 
If he wishes to exempt his car from this imposition of demurrage he must either, by 
general orders given to the carriers or by specific orders as to incoming freight, notify 
the carrier of the track upon which he wishes his freight placed, in which event he will 
have the full 48 hours' free time from the time when the placement is made upon the 
track designated. This "Note" will apply except when in conflict with Rule 2, Section 
B, Paragraph 1. 

Section B. — Twenty-four hours' (one day) free time will be allowed: 

1. When cars are held for reconsignment, diversion or reshipment, or 
held in transit on order of consignor, consignee or owner. 

Note 1. — This will apply to cars loaded with coal or coke, when moved from mines, 
mine siding or coke ovens upon instructions of mine owners, operators or shippers and 
held at weighing stations, classification yards or elsewhere, for forwarding directions. 

Note 2. — This will not apply to cars subject to Rule 2, Section B, Paragraph 3. 

The term "diversion" or "reconsignment" will be applied as defined in the recon- 
signment tariffs of this railroad, except that under this rule when a car is placed for 
delivery at destination a "turn-over" (or order for delivery to another party) which 
does not involve a change in billing records nor an additional movement of the car 
is not a reconsignment for the purpose of applying these demurrage rules. (See Rule 
2, Section A.) 

A reshipment is the making of a new contract by which under a new 
rate the original lading, without being unloaded, is forwarded in the same 
car to another destination. 

2. When cars, destined for delivery to or for farwarding by a connecting 
line, are held under tariff regulations for surrender of bill of lading or 
payment of lawful freight charges. 

3. When cars are held in transit and placed for inspection or grading, 
including reconsignment or other disposition orders. At stations where 
grain and hay must be inspected or graded, the consignee agreeing with 
the carrier in writing for file at the station, to accept the bulletining of the 
cars as due and adequate notice of arrival, the bulletins must be posted by 
9:00 A. M. of each day, showing the previous twenty-four (24) hours' 
receipts, and the free time (twenty-four hours) is to be calculated from the 
first 7:00 A. M. thereafter. Where there is no agreement for bulletining of 
cars, the free time must be calculated from the first 7:00 A. M. after the 
day on which notice of arrival is sent or given to the consignee. 



Freight Rates 131 

4. Except as otherwise provided in Rule 2, Section A, Paragraph 3, 
when cars are held to complete loading, or to partly unload. 

Note. — When a car held for unloading is partly unloaded and partly reloaded, 48 
hours' free time will be allowed for the entire transaction. 

5. On cars containing freight in bond for Customs entry and Govern- 
ment inspection. (See Rule 8, Section F.) 

6. When cars are held in transit because of any condition solely at- 
tributed to consignor, consignee or owner, not otherwise specifically pro- 
vided for in these rules. (See Rule 3, Section G.) 

Section C. — No free time will be allowed on cars received from switching 
line and held by this railroad for forwarding directions, except that cars 
received between 4:00 P. M. and 7:00 A. M. will not be subject to demur- 
rage if forwarding directions are received prior to the following 12 noon. 
(See Exception below.) (See Rule 3, Section F.) 

Rule 3 — Computing Time 

NOTE/ — In computing- time, Sundays and legal holidays (National, State, and Munici- 
pal), but not half -holidays, will be excluded, except as otherwise provided in Section 
A of Rule 9. When a legal holiday falls on Sunday the following Monday will be 
excluded. 

Section A. — On cars held for loading, time will be computed from the first 
7:00 A. M. after placement on public delivery tracks and without notice of 
placement, but if not placed within 24 hours after 7:00 A. M. of the day 
for which ordered, time will be computed from 7:00 A. M. after the day on 
which notice of placement is sent or given to consignor. (See Rule 2, Sec- 
tion A, Paragraph 1, and Rule 6 — Cars for Loading.) 

Note. — Except as otherwise provided in Rule 2, Section C, and Rule 3, Section 
F, forwarding directions for a car loaded out-bound, sent by the consignor by U. S. 
Mail to the agent of this railroad at point of shipment, will release car at 7 :00 A. M. 
of the date received, provided they are mailed prior to the date received, and provided, 
further, that the car is peady for forwarding at such 7 :00 A. M. 

Note 2. — On cars subject to Rule 2, Section B, Note 1, time will be computed from 
the first 7 :00 A. M. after their arrival at point where held, and without notice. 

Section B. — 1. On cars held for orders, surrender of bill of lading or 
payment of freight charges, whether such cars have been placed in position 
to unload or not, time will be computed from the first 7:00 A. M. after the 
day on which notice of arrival is sent or given to the consignee or party 
entitled to receive same. (See Rule 4 — Notification.) 

Note. — The time between receipt of order and placement of car (not to include the 
time attributable to the act or neglect of consignor or consignee) will be deducted from 
the total detention of the car. 

2. Orders for disposition or reconsignment, when mailed, wired or other- 
wies transmitted by the reconsignor to agent of the carrier at point where 
cars are held, or to the agent of any carrier named in the bill of lading 
contract or participating in the transportation transaction, unless other- 
wise provided by tariff, will release cars at 7:00 A. M. of the date such 
orders are received by any such agent, provided they are sent or given 
prior to the date received. 

Such orders mailed, wired or otherwise transmitted and received the 
same date, will release cars at the hour the orders are received by any such 
agent. 

Date of mailing to be determined by the postmark. 

Note. — When order releasing a car is sent to the railroad by U. S. mail and the 
order is not received by the addresse, the car shall be considered released as of the 
date the order should have been delivered, provided proof is furnished by the claimant 
that the order was deposited in the U. S. mail properly stamped and addressed on 
the date claimed. 

Section C. — 1. On cars held for unloading, except as otherwise provided 
in Section B, Paragraph 1, of this Rule, time will be computed from the 
first 7:00 A. M., after placement on public delivery tracks, and after the 
day on which notice of arrival is sent or given to consignee or party entitled 
to receive same. If car is not placed within 24 hours after notice of arrival 
has been sent or given, time will be computed from the first 7:00 A. M. 
after the day on which notice of placement has been sent or given to the 



132 N. C. Corporation Commission 

consignee or party entitled to receive same. (See Rule 4, Sections A and 
D.) 

Note. — On cars subject to Rule 4, Section D, time will be computed from first 7 :00 
A. M. following- removal by consignee of any part of contents of the car. 

2. On cars subject to Rule 5, Section B, Paragraph 2, time will be com- 
puted from the first 7:00 A. M. after the day on which notice as required 
by Rule 5, Section B, Paragraph 1, is sent or given to the consignee or 
party entitled to receive same. 

Section D. — On cars to be delivered on other than public delivery tracks, 
time will be computed from the first 7:00 A. M. after actual or constructive 
placement on such tracks. Time computed from actual placement on cars 
placed at exactly 7:00 A. M. will begin at the same time 7:00 A. M.; actual 
placement to be determined by the precise time the engine cuts loose. (See 
Rule 4, Section C, and Rules 5 and 6.) 

Note 1. — "Actual Placement" is made when a car is placed in an accessible position 
for loading- or unloading or at a point previously designated by the consignor or con- 
signee. If such placing is prevented from any cause attributable to consignor or 
consignee and car is placed on the private or other-than-public-delivery track serving 
the consignor or consignee, it shall be considered constructively placed, without notice. 

Note 2. — Any railroad track or portion thereof assigned for individual use will 
be treated as "other-than-public-delivery track." 

Section E. — On cars to be delivered on interchange tracks of industrial 
plants performing the switching service for themselves or other parties, 
time will be computed from the first 7:00 A. M. after actual or constructive 
placement on such interchange tracks until return to the same or another 
interchange track. Time computed from the actual placement on cars 
placed at exactly 7:00 A. M. will begin at the same 7:00 A. M.; actual 
placement to be determined by the precise time the engine cuts loose. (See 
Rule 4, Section C, and Rules 5 and 6.) Cars returned loaded will not be 
recorded released until necessary billing instructions are furnished. 

Note.- — Where two or more parties take delivery from the same interchange track, 
or where the railroad company uses the interchange track for other cars, or where the 
interchange track is not adjacent to the plant and the industry use^ the railroad's 
tracks to reach same, a notice of placement shall be sent or given to the consignee 
and time will be computed from the first 7 :00 A. M. thereafter. 

Section F. — On cars received from switching line and held by this rail- 
road for forwarding directions, time will be computed, without notice, 
from the first 7:00 A. M. after received. (See Rule 2, Section C.) 

Section G. — On cars subject to Rule 2, Section B, Paragraph 6, time will 
be computed from the first 7:00 A. M. after the day on which notice that 
the car has been stopped in transit and is being held, has been sent or 
given the consignor, consignee or party entitled to receive same. 

Rule 4 — Notification 

Section A. — Notice of arrival shall be sent or given consignee or party 
entitled to receive same by the railroad's agent in writing or, in lieu thereof, 
as otherwise agreed to in writing by the railroad and consignee, within 
twenty-four hours after arrival of car and billing at destination, such 
notice to contain car initials and number, point of shipment, contents and, 
if transferred in transit, the initial and number of original car. When 
address of consignee does not appear on billing, and is not known, the 
notice of arrival must be deposited in United tates mail enclosed in a 
stamped envelope bearing return address, same to be preserved on file if 
returned. An impression copy shall be retained, and when notice is sent 
or given on a postal card the impression shall be of both sides. (See Rule

notice of arrival has been sent or given, notice of placement shall be sent 
or given to consignee. 

Note. — When owner requests that original point of shipment be omitted on recon- 
signed cars, this information shall not be shown on notice of arrival at destination. 



Freight Rates L33 

Section B. — When cars are ordered stopped in transit, notice shall be sent 
or given the party ordering the cars stopped upon arrival of cars at point 
of stoppage.

in-transit privilege. Notice shall be sent or given to the party designated to perform 
the milling other in transit service. 

Section C. — Delivery of cars upon other than public delivery tracks or 
upon industrial interchange tracks, or written notice sent or given to con-

(b). 

Section D. — In all cases where any part of the contents of a car has been

such removal shall be considered as notice of arrival. (See Rule 3, Section 
C, Paragraph 1.) 

Section E. — 1. When carload freight is refused at destination, notice of 
such refusal shall, within 24 hours thereafter, be sent by wire to consignor, 
when known, at his expense, or when not known, to agent at point of ship- 
ment, who shall be required promptly to notify the shipper if known. 

2. (a) When unclaimed perishable carload freight has not been dis- 
posed of within two days from the first 7:00 A. M. after the day on which 
notice of arrival has been sent or given to consignee, notice to that effect 
shall be sent by wire as provided in Paragraph 1 of this section. 

(b) When other carload freight is unclaimed within five days from the 
first 7:00 A. M. after the day on which notice of arrival has been sent or 
given to the consignee, a notice to that effect shall be sent by wire as pro- 
vided in Paragraph 1 of this section. 

(See Rule 8, Section D, Paragraph 4.) 

Rule 5 — Placing Cars For Unloading 

Note. — Under this rule the time of movement between hold point and destination. 
and any other time for which the railroad is responsible, will not be computed against 
consignee. 

Section A. — 1. When delivery of a car consigned or ordered to an indus- 
trial interchange track or to other than a public delivery track cannot bo 
made on account of the inability of the consignee to receive it, or becaust 
of any other condition attributable to the consignee, such car will be held at 
destination, or if it cannot reasonably be accommodated there, at the 
nearest available hold point, and written notice that the car is held and 
that the railroad is unable to deliver will be sent or given to the consignee. 
This will be considered constructive placement. (See Rule 3, Sections D and 
E.) 

2. On a car to be delivered to a switching line for final delivery and 
which consignee located on switching line is unable to receive and which 
for that reason the switching line is unable to receive from the railroad, 
notice will be sent or given the switching line showing point of shipment, 
car initials and numbers, contents and consignee and if transferred in 
transit the initials and number of the original car. 

3. When the railroad is the switching line and, under conditions set 
forth in Paragraph 1, is unable to receive cars from a connecting line at 
destination for delivery within switching limits, upon receipt of notice 
from connecting line it will notify the consignee and put such cars under 
constructive placement. (See Rule 4, Section C.) 

Section B. — 1. When delivery cannot be made on specifically designated 
public delivery tracks, on account of such tracks being fully occupied, or 
from other causes beyond the control of the railroad, notice shall be sent or 
given the consignee in writing or, in lieu thereof, as otherwise agreed to 
in writing, that delivery will be made at the nearest available point. Such 
delivery shall be made unless the consignee shall before delivery indicate 
a preferred availabel point, in which case the preferred delivery will be 
made. 



134 N. C. Corporation Commission 

2. In the event consignee or party entitled to receive shipment serves 
notice upon the railroad of refusal to accept delivery at the point named in 
notice sent or given in accordance with Paragraph 1, the car will be held 
awaiting opportunity to deliver on the specially designated track subject 
to Rule 3, Section C, Paragraph 2. 

Rule 6 — Cars For Loading 

Section A. — Cars for loading will be considered placed when such cars 
are actually placed or held on orders of the consignor. In the latter case 
the agent must send or give the consignor written notice of all cars which 
he has been unable to place because of condition of the other-than-public- 
delivery track or because of other conditions attributable to the consignor. 
This will be considered constructive placement. (See Rule 3, Sections A, D 
and E.) 

Section B. — When empty cars placed on orders are not used in transpor- 
tation service, demurrage will be charged from actual or constructive 
placement until released, with no free time allowance. 

Note. — In the application of this section a demurrage day consists of a twenty-four 
period computed from the hour of actual or constructive placement of the car. (See 
Section D.) 

Section C. — Private cars which have been loaded on the trucks of their 
owners, received from such tracks and held by the railroad for forwarding 
directions, are subject to demurrage charges from the first 7:00 A. M. after 
they are received until proper forwarding directions are furnished, with no 
free time allowance and without notice. 

Section D. — If an empty car is appropriated without being ordered, it 
shall be considered as having been ordered and actually placed at the time 
so appropriated. If not loaded outbound, such car is subject to Section B 
of this Rule. 

Rule 7 — Demurrage Charges 

Section A. — On cars not subject to Rule 9 (Average Agreement) : After 
the expiration of free time allowed, the following charges per car per day, 
or fraction of a day will be made until car is released: (See Notes 1 
and 2.) 

For each of the first four days, $2. 

For each succeeding day, $5. 

Section B. — The charges on cars subject to average agreement are set 
forth in Rule 9. (See Notes 1 and 2.) 

Note 1. — When through no fault of the consignor or consignee the lading of a car 
is transferred by a carrier into two or more cars, or when two small cars are furnished 
by a carrier in lieu of one large car ordered by the shipper, demurrage will be charged 
as for one car only, as long as any of such cars are detained beyond the free time. 

Note 2. — When a car contains two or more minimum carload shipments consigned to 
more than one consignee at the same station, demurrage will be charged the same as 
if the shipments had been received in separate cars and each consignee will be allowed 
a total free time of 48 hours (2 days) for unloading, free of interference by the other 
consignee or consignees. 

(See North Carolina Storage Rules and Charges for additional charges 
on cars loaded with inflammable freight and less dangerous or relatively 
safe explosives.) 

Rule 8— Claims 

No demurrage charges shall be collected under these rules for detention 
of cars through causes named below, except as provided in Section B, 
Paragraph 2, of this rule. Demurrage charges assessed or collected under 
such conditions shall be promptly cancelled or refunded by the railroad. 

CAUSES 

Section A. — Weather Interference. 

Note. — A consignor or consignee shall not bo absolved from demurrage under Section 
A of this Rule if, considering the character of the freight, others similarly situated 
and under the same conditions reasonably could and did load or unload cars during 
the same period of time. 



Freight Kates 135 

1. When the condition of the weather during any part of the prescribed 
free time (or the adjusted free time provided for in Section B of this Rule) 
is such as to make it impossible for men or teams to work at loading or 
unloading, or impossible to place freight in cars, or move it from cars, 
without serious injury to the freight, or when, because of high water or 
snowdrifts (see note) it is impossible, during the prescribed free time, to 
get to the cars for loading or unloading, the free time will be extended until 
a total of forty-eight hours (or twenty-four hours on cars subject to Rule 
2, Section B, Paragraph 4) free from such interference shall have been al- 
lowed. No additional time will be allowed unless claim, stating fully the 
conditions which prevented loading or unloading within the free time, is 
presented in writing to the railroad's agent within thirty days after the 
date on which demurrage bill is rendered. 

Note. — The extension of free time on account of high water or snow drifts shall 
apply to other-than-public-delivery tracks only where there is a disability of the 
railroad. 

2. When, at time of actual placement, lading is frozen so as to require 
heating, thawing or loosening to unload, the free time allowed shall be 
extended forty-eight (48) hours, making a total of ninety-six (96) hours 
free time, provided the consignee shall, within forty-eight (48) hours after 
actual placement, serve upon the railroad's agent a written statement 
that the lading was in such frozen condition at time of actual placement. 

3. No. allowance on account of weather interference shall be made on 
cars subject to Rule 6, Section B. 

Section B. — Bunching. 

1. Cars for loading. When, by reason of delay or irregularity in filling 
orders, cars are bunched and placed for loading in accumulated numbers 
in excess of daily placing as ordered, the shipper shall be allowed such 
free time for loading as he would have been entitled to had the cars been 
placed for loading as ordered. 

2. Cars for unloading or reconsigning. When, as the result of the act 
or neglect of any carrier, cars originating at the same point, moving via 
the same route and consigned to one consignee at one point, are bunched, 
or when cars originating at different points and transported via the same 
route from an intermediate common point to destination are bunched after 
arriving at the common point (in which event the dates of arrival of the 
cars at common point will govern in determining the bunching instead of 
the dates of shipment), and are tendered for delivery by this railroad in 
accumulated number in excess of daily shipments, the consignee shall be 
allowed such free time as he would have been entitled to had the cars not 
been bunched, but when any car is released before the expiration of such 
free time, the free time on the next car will be computed from the first 
7:00 A. M. following such release; provided, however, no allowance will be 
made unless claim is presented in writing to the railroad's agent within 
thirty days after the date on which bill for demurrage is rendered, sup- 
ported by the receipted bill as evidence of payment of the demurrage as 
originally charged and a statement showing date and point of shipment 
of each car involved in the bunching claim. 

Note. — Under this rule, cars moving from different points and/or via different 
routes to destination and arriving on different dates will be considered bunched if 
tendered for delivery on one day and such free time shall be allowed as the consignee 
would have been entitled to had the cars been placed or tendered for delivery in the 
order of their arrival. 

Section C. — Demand of overcharge. When the railroad's agent demands 
the payment of transportation charges in excess of tariff authority. 

Section D. — Delayed or improper notice by the railroad. 

1. (a) When notice of arrival does not contain all the information 
specified in Rule 4, Section A, consignee shall not have the right to call in 
question the sufficiency of such notice, unless within forty-eight (48) 
hours from the first 7:00 A. M. after the day on which notice of arrival has 
been sent or given to the consignee or party entitled to receive same, he 
shall serve upon the railroad's agent a written statement of the omitted 
information required, in which event the time between receipt of such 



136 N. C. Corporation Commission 

statement and the furnishing of the omitted information will not be com- 
puted against the consignee. 

(b) When the consignee makes request in writing for the name of the 
consignor, point of shipment and (or), if transferred in transit, the initials 
and number of the original car, to enable him to identify the shipment in a 
car placed or tendered for delivery on other than public delivery track, 
such information will be furnished, but consignee shall not be entitled to 
additional free time unless such request has been served on the railroad's 
agent within the prescribed free time, in which event the time between 
receipt of the request and compliance therewith will not be computed 
against the consignee. (See Rule 4, Section A, Note.) 

2. When claim is made that a mailed notice has been delayed, postmark 
thereon shall be accepted as indicating the date of the notice. 

3. When a notice of arrival (See Rule 4, Section A) is mailed by the 
railroad on Sunday, a legal holiday, or after 3:00 P. M. on other days (as 
evidenced by the postwark thereon), consignee shall be allowed five hours' 
additional free time provided he shall send or give to the railroad's agent, 
within the first twenty-four hours of free time, written advice that the 
notice had not been received until after the free time had begun to run; 
in case of failfure on the part of the consignee so as to advise the rail- 
road's agent, no additional free time shall be allowed. 

4. In case of failure by the railroad to send notice in accordance with 
the provisions of Rule 4, Section E, the consignor shall not be held liable 
for demurrage charges between the date the notice should have been sent 
and the date it was actually sent. 

Section E. — Error of any railroad named in the bill of lading contract 
or participating in the transportation transaction, which prevents proper 
tender or delivery. 

1. Under this Rule demurrage will be charged on the basis of the 
amount that would have accrued but for such error. This also applies in 
the case of constructively placed cars being "run-around" by actually 
placing recent arrivals ahead of previous arrivals, but allowance will only 
be made on cars subject to Rule 9, Average Agreement, that are held 
beyond the fourth debit day. 

Note. — No allowance will be made for delay in placing nor for interruption in load- 
ing or unloading cars consigned or ordered to a track, other than a public delivery 
track, used by two or more shippers or consignees when such delay or interruption is 
attributable to such joint use of such track, except that due allowance will be made 
if a car displaced in switching is not replaced when the switching is completed. (See 
Rule 3, Section D, Note 2.) 

Section F. — Delay by U. S. Customs. Such additional free time shall be 
allowed as has been lost through such delay. 

Rule 9 — Average Agreement 

When the following agreement has been entered into, the charge for 
detention of cars, on all cars subject to demurrage, held for loading or 
unloading, shall be computed on the basis of the average time of detention 
to all such cars released during each calendar month; such average deten- 
tion and charge to be computed as follows: 

Section A. — One credit will be allowed for each car, released within the 
first twenty-four (24) hours of free time. After the expiration of forty- 
eight (48) hours' (96 hours on cars subject to Rule 8, Section A, Para- 
graph 2) free time, one debit per car per day, or fraction of a day, will be 
charged for each of the first four days. In' no case shall more than one 
credit be allowed on any one car, and in no case shall more than four 
credits be applied in cancellation of debits accruing on any one car. When 
a car has accrued four debits a charge of $5 per car per day, or fraction 
of a day, will be made for all subsequent detention and will apply on all 
subsequent Sundays and legal holidays, including a Sunday or holiday 
immediately following the day on which the fourth debit begins to run. 

Section B. — Credits earned on cars held for loading shall not be used in 
offsetting debits accruing on cars held for unloading, nor shall credits 



Freight Rates 137 

earned on cars held for unloading be used in offsetting debits accruing on 
cars held for loading. 

Section C. — Credits cannot be earned by private cars subject to Rule 1, 
Section B, Paragraph 4 (a), but debits charged on such private cars while 
under constructive placement may^be offset by credits earned on other cars. 

Section D. — At the end of the calendar month, the total number of credits 
will be deducted from the total number of debits and $2 per debit will be 
charged for the remainder. If the credits equal or exceed the debits no 
charge will be made for the detention of the cars, except as otherwise 
provided in Section A for detention beyond the fourth debit day, and no 
payment will be made by the railroad on account of such excess of credits; 
nor shall the credits in excess of the debits of any one month be considered 
in computing the average detention for another month. 

Section E. — A party who enters into this average agreement shall not be 
entitled to include therein cars subject to Rule 2, Section B, or Rule 6, 
Sections B and C, nor shall he be entitled to cancellation or refund of 
demurrage charges under Section A, Paragraph 1, Rule 8, nor under Sec- 
tion B of Rule 8, except where bunching has been caused by strike or 
carrier's employees, or where shipments of coal, withheld by the carrier 
by strike of carrier's employees, or where shipments of coal, withheld by 
the carrier to protect its fuel supply, are subsequently delivered to con- 
signee in accumulated numbers. 

Section F. — A party who enters into this average agreement may be re- 
quired to give sufficient security to the railroad for the payment of balances 
against him at the end of each month. 

Section G. — An average agreement must include all cars loaded or un- 
loaded within the jurisdiction of the same station, except that when desired 
separate agreements may be entered into for each plant or yard within the 
jurisdiction of the same station, but in no case can the cars loaded or un- 
loaded within the jurisdiction of two or more stations be combined in one 
average agreement, nor shall the cars loaded or unloaded by more than one 
consignor or consignee be combined in one average agreement, except that 
cars consigned, reconsigned or ordered to a public elevator, warehouse or 
cotton compress serving various parties may be combined in one average 
agreement.

142 N. C. Corporation Commission 

CAUSES 

Section A. — Weather Interference. 

Note. — A consignor or consignee shall not be absolved from storage under Section 
A of this rule if, considering the character of the freight, others similarly situated and 
under the same condition, reasonably could and did deliver or remove freight during 
the same period of time. 

1. When the condition of the weather, during the prescribed free time, 
is such as to make it impossible to complete delivery of outbound shipments 
or remove inbound freight from railroad premises without serious injury to 
the freight, the free time shall be extended until a total of forty-eight hours 
(24 hours on freight subject to Rule 3, Section B, Paragraphs 1 and 3) 
free from such weather interference shall have been allowed. 

2. When, because of high water or snow drifts it is impossible to remove 
freight from railroad premises during the prescribed free time. (See 
Note above.) 

Section B. — Demand of overcharge. 

When the carrier's agent demands the payment of transportation charges 
in excess of tariff authority. 

Section C. — Delayed or Improper Notice. 

1. When notice of arrival does not contain all the information specified 
in Rule 2, Section A, the consignee shall not have the right to call in ques- 
tion the sufficiency of such notice unless within the prescribed free time 
he shall serve upon the railroad's agent a written request for the omitted 
information required, in which event the time between receipt of such re- 
quest and the furnishing of the omitted information will not be computed 
against the consignee. 

2. When claim is made that a mailed notice has been delayed, the post- 
mark thereon shall be accepted as indicating the date of the notice. 

3. When a notice is mailed by carrier on Sunday, a legal holiday, or 
after 3:00 P. M. on other days (as evidenced by the postmark thereon), the 
consignee shall be allowed five hours, additional free time, provided he shall 
mail or send to the carrier's agent, within the first twenty-four hours of 
free time, written advice that the notice had not been received until after 
the free time had begun to run. In case of failure on part of consignee so 
to notify carrier's agent, no additional free time shall be allowed. 

4. In case of failure by carrier to send or give notice in accordance with 
the provisions of Rule 2, Section B, no storage charges will be assessed 
against the consignor between the date on which the notice should have 
been sent or given and the date on which it was actually sent or given. 

5. When an order giving disposition of a shipment is sent to the railroad 
by United States mail and the order is not received by the addressee, such 
order shall be considered received as of the date it should have been de- 
livered, provided proof is furnished by the claimant that the order was 
deposited in the mail properly stamped and addressed on the date claimed. 
In such event, storage charges shall not be assessed against the shipment 
during the time the railroad was unable to make delivery by reason of non- 
receipt of the order. 

Section D. — Error of any railroad which prevents proper tender or de- 
livery. 

Under this rule storage will be charged on the basis of the amount that 
would have accrued but for such error. 

Section E. — Delay by United States Customs. 

Such additional free time shall be allowed as has been lost through such 
delay.

GOVERNING SWITCHING AT POINTS IN NORTH CAROLINA 
Amends Rule 9. Changed to read as follows: 

Rule 9 — Local Switching Rates 

That is, switching of traffic which is loaded at one point in a town and is 
discharged at another point in the same town within switching limits, when 
the haul involved does not exceed a distance of three miles, and when the 
service performed applies only on traffic originating and moving wholly 
within the State of North Carolina. 

(a) When such traffic originates at and is discharged at points on the 
rails of one and the same carrier, the switching charges will be as shown 
in Paragraph (e). 

(b) When such traffic originates at a point on the rails of one carrier 
and is discharged at a point on the rails of another carrier the switching 
charges will be as shown in Paragraph (f). 

(c) When such traffic originates at and is discharged at the same plant 
or industry on the rails of one and the same company, the switching charges 
will be as shown in Paragraph (d).

EXPRESS COMPANIES REQUIRED TO GIVE NOTICE OF NON- 
DELIVERY OF FRESH FISH SHIPMENTS 

All express companies operating in this State and which hold themselves 
out as carriers of fresh fish, shall give notice to the consignor of the failure 
or refusal of the consignee to receive such shipments when the same have 
remained on hand four hours during daylight after arriving at point of des- 
tination, said notice to be given by filing a telegram to that effect with a 
telegraph company doing a commercial business between points of origin 
and destination; provided, that it shall not be necessary to give such notice 



Freight Kates 145 

unless the carrier is directed by the shipper so to do in writing or printing 
attached to the package. 

This shall not apply where there is no commercial telegraph office open 
for business at either initial or destination point at the expiration of the 
time fixed herein. 

Should the carrier sell such shipments on the order of the shipper in any 
manner not pointed out by law, it shall be entitled to a commission for 
such services of 10 per cent of the amount realized. 

The carrier shall not await answer to its said telegram to the shipper 
longer than two hours, after which time it shall act in reference to said 
shipments in accordance with its duty under the law. 

Should the said shipment perish or become damaged becaues of the 
carrier's observance of the requirements of this order, it shall not be liable 
in damages therefor, if not otherwise at fault. 

The carrier shall re-ice such shipments only when directed to do so by 
the shipper, and when it is practicable so to do; and when shipments are 
re-iced, same shall be done at actual cost and at the expense of the shipper. 

The shipper shall pay the going and return charges on shipments which 
are returned under this order, together with the telegraph tolls. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

April 5, 1923. Clerk. 

Circular No. 248. 

Rule Governing Issuance of Bills of Lading 

The obligation lawfully rests upon the carrier's agent to refrain from 
executing a bill of lading which contains provisions that can not lawfully be 
complied with, or provisions which are contradictory and therefore impos- 
sible of execution. When, therefore, the rate and the route are both given 
by the shipper in the shipping instructions and the rate given does not 
apply via the route designated, it is the duty of the carrier's agent to 
ascertain from the shipper whether the rate or the route given in the ship- 
ping instructions shall be followed. The carrier will be held responsible 
for any damages which may result from the failure of its agent to follow 
this course. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

Effective July 1, 1927. Clerk. 

Circular No. 285. 

DISTANCE TABLE RULES 

On January 19, 1926, the Commission issued an order requiring the car- 
riers to revise and file with the Commission, effective not later than June 
15, 1926, distance tables showing distances between all points on each 
line, said distances to show actual miles, including fractions of mile. 

In complying with the order it was necessary for the carriers in some 
instances to have their lines remeasured, and as a result of the order a 
great many changes were made in distances, some of which were increases 
and others decreases. Some of these changes were, no doubt, due to track 
revisions, changes in locations of stations, etc., since the old distances were 
of long standing. 

Inquiries are now reaching the Commission concerning these changes. 
Some of these are complaints about increases in rates as a result of in- 
creased distances, while others are in the form of claims for overcharges 
where distances have been decreased, alleging former distances were in- 
correct and, therefore, illegal. 

The Commission is of the opinion, and so rules, that it would be unreason- 
able to expect a general revision of this nature to occur without involving 
some changes in distances and consequently in rates. Therefore, it is 

Ordered, That distances as shown in carriers' distance tables, effective 
on date of shipment, must be strictly adhered to, with exceptions as shown 
in following note: 

Note, (a) Where it is clearly shown that published distance is erron- 
eous due to typographical or printer's error, or other clerical mistake, the 



146 N. C. Corporation Commission 

established correct distance shall be protected, and carriers will amend 
their distance tables as early as practicable after their attention is directed 
to the error. 

(b) Agent Cottrell's N. C. Joint Tariff was not amended to reflect the 
new distances until December 10, 1926; therefore, where there is a con- 
flict between the distances shown in the Joint Tariff and those made on 
combination by use of the revised local distance tables, via routes shown in 
Joint Tariff, the latter will govern. 

By order of the Commission: R. O. Self, 

May 10, 1927. Clerk. 

Circular No. 283. 



CORPORATION COMMISSION v. COMMON CARRIERS BY RAIL 
IN NORTH CAROLINA 

In order to clarify an apparent misconception on the part of the common 
carirers of the state as to the proper method for arriving at correct rates 
now applicable on certain commodities named in Agent Kelly's Freight 
Tariff No. 228 I. C. C. U. S.-l when handled on combination rates over two 
or more lines within the state, it is 

Ordered, That the rules and arbitraries set out in Agent Kelly's Freight 
Tariff No. 228 I. C. C. U. S.-l for arriving at combination rates on the com- 
modities named in said Tariff shall, until further ordered, apply to intra- 
state Traffic in North Carolina. It is further 

Ordered, That the principles for arriving at combination rates as set out 
in the said tariff are to be applied in connection with legally established 
rates of the carriers in this state. When used in connection with statutory 
deductions, the provisions of the Kelly Tariff to be invoked before making 
statutory deductions. (See Note). It is further 

Ordered, That these rules shall apply to rates made on combination be- 
tween all common carriers by rail within the state. 

Note. — First deduct the arbitraries shown in Kelly's Tariff, then apply the statutory 
deductions, after which add back artitraries as per Kelly's Tariff, but in no case shall 
combination rates so made be less than can be made by use of Joint line scale for short 
line distance between the same points.

GENERAL RULES GOVERNING NORTH CAROLINA INTRASTATE 

TRAFFIC. 

Rule 1. Rates to Intermediate Intrastate Destinations or from, Interme- 
diate Intrastate Origins Not to Exceed Rates from or to More 
Distant Interstate Origins or Destinations. 
In applying any scale of rates from points of origin in North Carolina 
to destinations within this State, on intrastate traffic, rates so made shall 
in no case exceed rates from or to more distant interstate points from or 
to which there are through published rates and from or to which the 
intrastate origin or destination is directly intermediate. 
Rule 2. Minimum Charge on Less Than Carload Shipments. 

The minimum charge for small shipments shall be for actual weight 
at the tariff rates, but not less than 50 cents for any single shipment. 

When a less than carload shipment moves under a rate made by a 
combination of separately established rates in the absence of a joint 
through rate, the minimum charge of fifty (50) cents will apply to the 
continuous through movement and not to each of the separately estab- 
lished factors. 
Rule 3. Carload Mixture Rule. 

When a number of different articles for which carload ratings are 
provided, are shipped at one time by one consignor to one consignee and 
destination, in a carload, they will be charged at the carload rate applica- 
ble to the highest rated article, and the carload minimum weight will 
be the highest provided for any article in the carload. See Exceptions 
below. 

Exceptions (1) — If by treating each of the articles as a separate car- 
load, or one or more as a separate carload, a lower charge results, such 
lower charge will apply. 

(2) — If by treating one or more of the articles as a carload and the 
other article or articles as a less carload results in a lower charge such 
lower charge will apply. 
Rule 4- Cotton Seed Hulls and Meal Mixture Rule. 

Cottonseed Hulls and Meal mixed, less carload, or in mixed carload 
will be accorded Fertilizer Rates. 
Rule 5. Stove and Range Packing Requirements. 

Box and crate requirements will not apply to Stoves and Ranges, cast 
iron, less carload.

HISTORY 

1. Exact name of common carrier making this report: Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway. 

2. Date of organization: Original charter granted to South and Western Railroad Company, 
January 26, 1905. On August 7, 1906, it was amended to increase the capital stock to $7,600,000. On 
March 7, 1909, it was amended to increase the capital stock to $27,000,000 ($15,000,000 preferred and 
$12,000,000 common) and to change the corporate name to Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway. 
On March 29, 1908, it was amended to provide for the construction, maintenance and operation of 
certain portion of our present line in Virginia. On July 26, J909, it was amended to increase the capital 



Carolina, Clinchfibld and Ohio Railroad Company 277 

stock from $27,000,000 to $30,000,000 ($15,000,000 preferred and $15,000,000 common). On May 23 
1912, it was amended to provide for the construction, maintenance and operation of a portion of our 
present line in Virginia. On June 3, 1912, it was amended to provide that the capital stock amounting 
to $30,000,000 should consist of $10,000,000 preferred and $20,000,000 common, instead of $15,000,000 
preferred and $15,000,000 common, as provided by the amendment of July 26, 1909. On June 7, 1912, 
it was amended to increase the capital stock from $30,000,000 to $40,000,000 ($15,000,000 preferred and 
$25,000,000 common) . On March 29, 1916, it was amended to increase the capital stock from $40,000,000 
to $50,000,000 ($25,000,000 preferred and $25,000,000 common). 

3. Under the laws of what government, state or territory organized? If more than one, name all; 
give reference to each statute and all amendments thereof. 

State of Virginia. See also question 6 and answer. 

4. If a consolidated company, name all constituent companies. Give specific reference to charter 
or general laws governing organization of each, and all amendments of same. 

See question 6 and answer. 

5. Date and authority for each consolidation and for each merger. 
See question 6 and answer. 

6. If a reorganized company, give name of original corporation, and refer to law under which it was 
organized and state the occasion for the reorganization. 

The original corporation was chartered by the State Corporation Commission of Virginia, on January 
26, 1905. The charter was amended March 7, 1908, changing the name to Carolina, Clinchfield and 
Ohio Railway, and increasing the capital stock. The present concern is authorized to operate in the 
States of Tennessee and North Carolina, as well as Virginia. By deed, dated March 31, 1908, the 
Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway acquired the properties, rights and franchises of South and 
Western Railroad, a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Tennessee, by articles of 
consolidation, dated November 20, 1906, between South and Western Railroad Company (of Tennessee) , 
and Kingsport Southern Railway, and is now operating these properties, etc., in Tennessee. By deed, 
dated April 16, 1908, the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway acquired the properties, rights and 
franchises of the South and Western Railroad Company, a corporation chartered under the laws of the 
State of North Carolina on December 1, 1905, and is now operating these properties, etc., in North 
Carolina. Thus, while the original South and Western Railroad Company (of Virginia) was only 
authorized to operate in Virginia, the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway is authorized to, and is, 
operating in Virginia, Tennessee and North Carolina.
